Future of Korumburra Library Site

Context

The Korumburra Town Centre Framework Plan (2013), adopted by Council 28 May 2014, recommends upgrading the existing supermarket and/or facilitating additional supermarket development in Korumburra. A supermarket developer has proposed a supermarket on the preferred supermarket site identified in the Framework Plan, at the corner of King and Commercial Streets.

Proposal

Council is working with the supermarket developer to provide a new full-line supermarket at the existing library site. This proposal is expected to involve:

  • The proposed sale of Council land at 155-165 Commercial Street, 1 King Street, Lot 2 PS316156 and 28 Victoria Street;
  • The relocation of the library and other affected community groups; and
  • Changes to vehicle access along Little Commercial Street.

The proposal also provides the opportunity for a new library in Korumburra. This library could be incorporated into a new community hub at the preferred community hub site (former kindergarten site 4 Victoria Street) or an alternative site subject to community consultation. The planning for this hub is expected to commence in the 2017/18 financial year.
