Work starts on Burton Community Hub

A ground-breaking ceremony has been held to mark the start of construction of the new Burton Community Hub which will showcase the transformation of the City of Salisbury’s Central Ward.

The Burton Community Hub will replace the Burton Community Centre at 386 Waterloo Corner Road, located next to the Salisbury United Football, Burton Park Playground and Springbank Plaza Shopping Centre.

It will include a range of library services, a community garden, a ‘shed’ and learning and reflective spaces that will enable greater connections with education, business and community.

Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM said the modern new site would follow in the footsteps of the two-year-old Salisbury Community Hub in becoming the social heart of the local community.

“The Burton Community Hub will bring together a range of services within one vibrant, adaptable space to be used by the whole community,” said Mayor Aldridge.

“The Hub will offer cultural, learning and recreational opportunities and features an innovative technology suite with WIFI enabled computers, quiet study areas, community programs and meeting and event spaces.”

The project is being developed by Council in partnership with the Federal Government, with $500,000 allocated under its Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (Phase 2) towards the community shed and garden components.

It is expected to open in mid-2022.
