It’s all go for arts centre project

Coral Street Arts and Culture Centre Concept

At its council meeting last night, the City of Victor Harbor voted to progress the Coral Street Arts and Culture Centre project.

The council decided to move ahead with the project after being presented with a detailed report that outlined alternate location and larger facility options for an arts and culture facility in Victor Harbor. The report included benchmarking analysis of 10 other facilities located across South Australia, New South Wales and Victoria, advice from an architect experienced in delivering similar projects, commentary from Country Arts SA’s Chief Executive Officer, a rough cost estimate for development at three greenfield sites within the council area, and possible next steps for elected members to consider.

“I am excited to see the Coral Street Arts and Culture Centre project proceed to deliver a community hub for Victor Harbor’s artistic and cultural activity,” said City of Victor Harbor Mayor Graham Philp.

“By pausing for one month to receive further information from administration, Council is satisfied that the proposed Coral Street Arts and Culture Centre will meet the needs of our community, assist in the revitalisation of the town centre, and provide much needed restoration for two of our significant heritage buildings.”

Mayor Philp commended council administration on their quick turnaround of the comprehensive report that assisted council to ensure it was making the best decision for its community.

“At the April council meeting we asked for more information from administration to ensure informed decision making, and were presented with a report that outlined all we asked for,” said Mayor Philp.

“We can now confidently move forward, and work towards the delivery of a modern arts and culture centre for our community.”

The council will now work to revise the current concept plans to incorporate feedback received through the community consultation undertaken earlier this year, before collating further information for the project prudential report and working towards detailed design of the project.
