    Randwick City Council will build a new community centre in Kensington on the site of the former Kensington Bowling Club, Randwick Mayor Scott Nash announced today.

    Randwick Council resolved at its meeting on Tuesday 22 July 2014, to proceed with the new community centre which will include rooms for hire, onsite parking, an outdoor gym, half basketball court, additional landscaping and footpath works on Edward Avenue.

    Council also resolved to explore alternative locations for small-sided soccer who will be relocated from the site once works commence.

    More than 700 people provided feedback on the proposal during Council’s community consultation process earlier this year.

    Randwick Mayor Scott Nash said the community centre will play an important role in the community.

    “This is much needed community space for the densely populated area of Kensington,” Mayor Nash said.

    “The community centre will help reinvigorate Kensington Park following the unfortunate demise of the Bowling Club in 2013. I feel we’ve struck a good balance between protecting the amenity of nearby residents and providing a quality community facility that will service everyone – young and old,” Mayor Nash said.

    Council will now develop detailed designs for the community centre and lodge a Development Application for the project. Construction will likely occur in 2015, subject to approval.
