Stage two consultation for the Multicultural Hub Feasibility Study has come to a close, we are reviewing your feedback.

There will be further opportunities for the broader community to contribute to this project at a later stage.

A multicultural hub is a building that has a number of rooms and spaces used by communities from different cultural backgrounds. There will be spaces for meetings and activities, and an outdoor garden area.

Examples include taking part in meetings and activities, finding information, learning new skills to help you get a job or do everyday tasks, and learning English.

It involves us finding out if a multicultural hub is needed by the community, what activities should take place, what rooms and spaces it should include, where it should be built, how it should be managed and how it will be funded.

Second Consultation - Closed

In the second stage of the consultation we are refining the requirements of the hub. We are asking the community for ideas about what you would like to do in such a hub and what sort of spaces it needs. You can now review a draft basic building floorplan and provide your feedback via the online survey.

Stage two of the community consultation is open until Sunday 14th June 2020. Your feedback will be used to further develop the feasibility study and shape the concept design of the proposed multicultural hub.
