Background

We're planning a new community meeting place for Weabonga.

As part of the Local Roads and Infrastructure Program funding Weabonga Hall project has been identified as a priority project.

The Weabonga Hall is in a state of non-repair. The funding will allow us to demolish the hall and erect a new open plan structure. This is an exciting opportunity for the community to have a modern structure to be used for social gathering and in times of need it would serve as an emergency assembly point.

About

Proposed plan

  • The new structure will be stand alone from the Rural Fire Service Shed, ensuring that access to and around the shed is freely available.
  • The existing power supply will be upgraded and extended to the barbeque facility.
  • The existing water tank located on the rear of the hall building will be relocated over next to the toilet block. A hand basin will be installed in the disability access toilet.

Consultation

Community consultation results

During community consultation held between 12 March to 9 April, 2021 we shared the proposed plans for a modern BBQ area structure to be constructed near the Weabonga RFS shed to be used for social gatherings and in times of need would serve as an emergency assembly point.

During this consultation period we asked for residents to choose from two choices of structure and seating designs. We would like to thank the community for your feedback and engagement over the 28-days and the results are below.


What's next?

During the recent consultation, we received a number of different ideas, concerns and questions about the proposed plans. The project team has taken on board all suggestions and concerns received and would like to host a Community meeting at Weabonga on Saturday 24 July, 2021 at 12pm to discuss the project in more detail.

If you wish to attend this meeting please RSVP before 5pm Wednesday 21 July by phoning Jody Young, Community Engagement Officer on 02 6767 5477 or email trc@tamworth.nsw.gov.au.

If you are unable to attend the meeting but would like to make a suggestion you can do so here before Friday 23 July.

All information received in writing and at the community meeting will be presented at a Councillor workshop in July.
