Axe to fall on old hall past best
THE City of Joondalup will be demolishing the Jack Kikeros Community Hall in Burns Beach from February.
Originally a transportable building constructed in the 1960s, the small hall facility was refurbished and installed at its current location in 1984.
It is now considered small, outdated and no longer appropriate for modern multi-purpose usage.
The opening of the Bramston Park Community Sporting Facility in 2016, also in Burns Beach, has provided a larger and more modern facility for the community use and local sport and recreation clubs.
Community engagement was conducted on the Burns Beach Master Plan in 2016, which identified the Jack Kikeros Community Hall site for a cafe or restaurant.
The City is liaising with hall user groups to identify other options at Bramston Park and nearby community facilities.
The demolition is expected to take about a week, with foreshore toilets and change rooms available for public use throughout the process.
Jack Kikeros was a local who lived in Burns Beach in the early 1970s and chaired a commuunity progress association.
