New home for RSL branch

Joondalup Times - - NEWS -

THE Wan­neroo RSL Sub­branch has a new home in Wan­neroo.

At the May 9 meet­ing, coun­cil­lors en­dorsed a two-year lease to the sub-branch for of­fice space at En­ter­prise House.

The build­ing is cur­rently used by the Wan­neroo Busi­ness As­so­ci­a­tion and The Hy­brid 935 co-work­ing com­mu­nity, which is a part­ner­ship be­tween the as­so­ci­a­tion and City.

A re­port by the City said the sub-branch needed a se­cure room to un­der­take its fund­ing pro­gram and or­gan­ise its An­zac Day and Re­mem­brance Day ser­vices.

As a not-for-profit lessee, it will not be charged rent and a main­te­nance fee, and the re­port noted an al­ter­na­tive fa­cil­ity would need to be found in the long term.

“The City is look­ing to trans­form the build­ing into a busi­ness spe­cific fa­cil­ity and there­fore in the longer term, ad­min­is­tra­tion will look to re­lo­cate Wan­neroo RSL to a more ap­pro­pri­ate lo­ca­tion when a suit­able of­fice be­comes avail­able,” it said.

Cr Dot New­ton said she was pleased with the de­ci­sion.

“It’s great to have them back here,” she said.
