Upgrade plan for her­itage civic cen­tre hall

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

COM­MU­NITY groups are ex­pected to make even greater use of the her­itage-listed Lesser Hall at the Cottes­loe Civic Cen­tre, which will get an es­ti­mated $653,000 im­prove­ment.

“The room is nor­mally used six or seven days a week, with nu­mer­ous is­sues on the same day not be­ing un­com­mon,” a Cottes­loe Coun­cil staff re­port said. At the De­cem­ber 15 meet­ing, coun­cil­lors agreed to the im­prove­ments, in­clud­ing roof and wall re­pairs, and paint­ing, funded by the $9.1 mil­lion sale of the for­mer Nailsworth Street de­pot sev­eral years ago.

The re­port said the fi­nal cost may be lower but the es­ti­mate had in­cluded $53,000 for con­tin­gen­cies, $51,000 to re­build the floor and $4700 to re­move tiles and wa­ter­proof a re­in­forced roof.
