Have your say on community facilities in Haberfield

Inner West Council has received $2.5 million from the Sydney Motorway Corporation to upgrade Council-owned community facilities in Haberfield.

While the funds are earmarked to upgrade Council-owned community facilities, Council’s intent is to boost Haberfield’s main streets and economy by bringing more people into the area.

Council owns two major community facilities in the heart of Haberfield: Haberfield Centre including Library and Mervyn Fletcher Hall.

Haberfield Centre was built in 1912 and was originally the School of Arts. It was the first public building in Haberfield. The centre is a well-known and much-used facility providing a variety of programs, services, resources and activity rooms to the community, as well as a local library.

Mervyn Fletcher Hall was originally the Baby Health Centre and Committee Room. Built in 1952, the centre was renamed after Dr W Mervyn Fletcher in 1954 to commemorate his service to the local community. The Hall is a meeting place for celebrations, exercise, music, dance, meetings and many other activities.

Council is seeking community input into how the $2.5 million can be best spent to ensure the first class upgrade of these facilities so they meet current and future needs of local users and residents.

Council is asking local residents: What do love about Haberfield, how do you use the current facilities and what improvements you would like to see?

Everyone’s invited to attend an onsite information session at Haberfield Library, 78-80 Dalhousie Street Haberfield:

• Wednesday, 13 June 2018, 10:30am-12:30pm
• Saturday, 16 June 2018, 9:30-11:30am

Hard copies of the survey are available at Haberfield Library in English and Italian.

Comment is invited until Sunday, 24 June 2018. Go to www.yoursayinnerwest.com.au.

The feedback received from the community and other stakeholders will be used to develop the upgrade plan.
A summary of feedback and Council’s subsequent decisions will be posted at Haberfield Centre including the Library and online.

Council will also email an update to anyone who completes a survey.
