The Lathlain Community Building is an example of how the Town intends to achieve its vision: “Victoria Park - Vibrant Lifestyle”. The central premise of this project is to deliver one multifunctional building to be immediately occupied by community groups/services, to help make Lathlain a more focal and vibrant place. The building will be occupied by the following community groups and services: Lathlain Carlisle Playgroup, Carlisle Victoria Park Toy Library and Child and Adolescent Health

Project Updates



Landscaping works underway at community building

January 13, 2017

Landscaping works have begun out the back and should be finished in three to four weeks.

Lease discussions with the three proposed tenants are continuing.



Town back in possession of community building

December 22, 2016

Great news! With the issuing of an occupancy permit for the new Community Building, the Town has now re-taken possession of the site.

It means that landscaping of a nature playground at the rear of the building can be done, which should begin in early January 2017. The estimated timeframe of these works is three to four weeks.

Much of the building has been fitted out. Negotiations on leases with the three proposed tenants (Child and Adolescent Health, Lathlain Playgroup and the Carlisle/Victoria Park Toy Library) are ongoing.



Community Building update

November 23, 2016

The builder is still finishing some final works before formally handing over the site back to the Town. It is expected that these works will be finished very soon.

The delay in handing over the site has meant that the landscaping has also been delayed. It is expected that the landscaping of the site will begin in early January 2017. 

Leases are still being finalised with the proposed tenants of the building. It is expected that they will be finalised shortly with the new building opening in February 2017.
