Bay and Basin library workshops planned


The Sanctuary Point community can participate in community consultation workshops surrounding the development of the Sanctuary Point District Library.  

Two community consultation sessions will be held in early December at St Georges Basin Community Hall.  

Shoalhaven Mayor Amanda Findley says council has committed funding towards the design of a new District Library for the Bay and Basin area in Sanctuary Point.  

“The Sanctuary Point District Library will inject new life into the Sanctuary Point village by providing a hub of community activity; access to technology and information," Cr Findley said.

She said it will be a place for meeting, collaborating, connecting, studying; and access to business spaces, reader services and collections.

“I encourage members of the local communities in the area to register to participate in the community consultation sessions," Cr Findley added.

"It’s important that we hear from a wide range of people to inform the draft design concept plan."

The project involves the preparation of a concept design, community consultation and preparation of a detailed design and associated documentation for lodgement of a Development Application. 

The community consultation sessions will be held on Wednesday December 9, with two-hour-long sessions starting at 11am and 5.30pm. 

Numbers are limited to 25 people per session due to COVID restrictions. 

Feedback will be used to inform the development of the draft concept plan and a final design concept will be presented to the community in early 2021. 

The public is encouraged to register their interest to participate in the sessions by visiting council’s Get Involved page.
