Civic Centre Repair and Refurbishment

The Civic Centre is a vital piece of community infrastructure that provides a place for our community to meet in formal and informal settings.

The building located at 68 Elizabeth Street in Moss Vale, includes the Council Chambers, Moss Vale Branch Library and a range of civic facilities and services.

The Civic Centre Repair and Refurbishment project involves repair and renewal works to the existing building.

The building was originally built in 1970 and extended in 1997. Since then, only minor maintenance activities such as painting, carpet replacement and an amenities upgrade have been carried out.

Council undertook this project because the existing building had significant maintenance issues, was energy inefficient and was difficult to access. The building also did not comply with current Workplace Health and Safety Standards.

Project Update - 29th July 2021

Internal works are practically complete with final defect rectification and compliance certification being undertaken. Works are now focused on external remediation including the front entry, Theatrette entry and landscape make-good.
