Transformation of the Civic Centre building to the new Civic and Community Enterprise Centre (CCEC) Transformation of the Civic Centre building to the new Civic and Community Enterprise Centre (CCEC)

If you’re looking for a service that used to be located in the building at the corner of Stockyards and Louise Streets, most services are now located at the Broad St Depot, except for Community Services (old Blue Care building on Alice St and Economic Development (Cunnamulla Fella Visitor Centre).

In mid 2018 after a third-party engineering inspection it was determined that the original Civic Centre building was structurally unsafe due to the foundations shifting and resulting in the building not being safe for use any longer.

Council staff were moved out of the building and initial community feedback was facilitated by ELIA Architecture in August 2018 in order to create the first concept plans. The community and council staff presented some great ideas to ELIA, with as much as possible taken into consideration for the concept. Council approved the final concept design at the November 2018 Council meeting, and the demolition of the existing building at the January 2019 Council meeting.

The tender for the demolition of the Civic Centre building was awarded in July 2019 with demolition works to follow.

ELIA Architecture will be visiting again in September 2019 for the next round of consultation that will include Council, staff and the community. The Community Consultation Meeting is on Thursday 5 September from 6-7pm at the Paroo Shire Hall. Please see more details below.

Paroo Shire Council is very fortunate to have received funding from the Local Government Grants and Subsidies Program (LGGSP) to the value of $5.312 million for the construction of the CCEC from the Department of Local Government, Racing and Multicultural Affairs.

Planning is currently underway for this project, so be sure to check this page for updates when they become available.

The project for the new CCEC building is underway and Council needs your ideas and feedback for the next stage.

We invite you to participate in a community consultation session to advise your preference on elements such as:

  • what services and facilities should be in the new building e.g. meeting space, high speed internet, tele/video conferencing
  • look and design of the building and what needs to be included in or within it e.g. amount of natural light, solar power
  • how the building should function e.g. open plan offices, after-hours access

Council’s aim for the new CCEC building is a multi-use facility for the whole community to use and enjoy, and we need your help to achieve this. Please come along to help us build the best possible facility for you.

If you're unable to make it to the meeting, you are able to mail your feedback to:
