New home for RSL branch
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.
