With its earlier DA lapsing before funding was secured, the original plans for the Gerringong’s museum and library complex have been tweaked before being submitted again for approval.
General Manager Michael Forsyth said the amendments were minor but it was important for the community to have the chance to provide comment.
“The new Gerringong Library and Museum will be important assets for the Gerringong community so we want to ensure everyone understands what is planned.
“The project will still deliver a library, community and meetings rooms but we’ve added overflow parking, improved disability parking and access and included bike racks.”
The historic School of Arts is to be restored to house the district’s Museum, and will be interconnected with two new sympathetically designed buildings at the back which will house the library and community hub.
Mr Forsyth has acknowledged the funding support provided by the Australian Government for the project.
“I want to again thanks Ann Sudmalis MP for helping secure the funds to ensure this project proceeds.”
It is hoped the facility will be open in early 2019.
The plans are available from the Council website: www.kiama.nsw.gov.au or by visiting the Admin building.
