Redland City Council is seeking expressions of interest from not-for-profit and community groups to manage two valuable city assets that are now available for community use at Redland Bay and Wellington Point.
The Redland Bay facility at 29-31 McWilliam Street is a former church building known as the Point Talburpin Park Hall.
With a floor size of approximately 106sqm, it was fully refurbished earlier this year with new internal flooring, paint, lights and fans.
The Wellington Point facility at 21 Roberts Street (corner Chermside Street) consists of two buildings with a total floor size of approximately 350sqm, sheds and off-street parking for about 8 cars.
The larger brick building has a common area with kitchen, offices, and accessible toilet and shower. The smaller weatherboard building has similar facilities but is only 100sqm. It has a ramp access.
Mayor Karen Williams said the two facilities presented a range of possible uses for community groups.
“Both are currently available but have been used over the years by various organisations delivering community services,” she said.
“Council is keen to hear proposals from interested community organisations around what they could be used for in the future.”
Cr Williams said the Expression of Interest process allowed community groups to submit their ideas and business cases to Council for consideration, with the aim of achieving optimum use and maximising community benefit as well as reducing operational burdens on the rest of the community.
The submissions period opens today, Thursday, 12 October and closes midnight Sunday, 5 November, 2023.
