Victoria’s 6th lockdown extended and Council services
Council endorsed the Brooklyn Community Hall Redevelopment project at the Ordinary Council Meeting on Tuesday 8 September 2020. We are now progressing with the next step of the this exciting journey, to review the preliminary concept design of the redevelopment.
A Stakeholder Reference Group (SRG) will be formed to guide and inform the review of the preliminary concept design and provide considerations to the future operational model of the facility.
Council is seeking Expressions of interest for three independent community representatives to participate in this SRG. Interested people will need to have a keen interest in the Brooklyn Community Hall and be willing to volunteer their time in this redevelopment project. In addition to these independent community members, representation will be sought from the following Brooklyn Community Groups:
The expression of interest to nominate for the SRG is now open and will close at 5pm, Friday 16 October 2020. You can view the terms of reference and nominate by downloading the Expression of Interest Form(PDF, 125KB) and the Terms of Reference here(PDF, 237KB).

The Brooklyn community has advocated to Council to update the Brooklyn Community Hall to bring it in line with current standards. Members of the Brooklyn community have asked for more flexible space to host meetings, community events and activities simultaneously. Users of the Brooklyn Community Hall have spoken about some of the challenges with the current hall including aged toilet and kitchen facilities, inadequate temperature controls, lack of natural light into the hall and limited connectivity between the hall and the rest of Brooklyn Reserve.
Council has used this information to develop a concept design for the redevelopment of the Brooklyn Community Hall for your further input. We have plans to transform the Brooklyn Community Hall into a modern and vibrant facility with enhanced connectivity, flexibility and ample space to serve the Brooklyn community. The concept design includes the following key features:
Initial community consultation on the concept plans was undertaken through May to June 2020. You can view the concept plans and other information on the building here.
