August 16th, 2022Hub on track at Trentham
Despite some concerns on social media, Hepburn Shire Council CEO Bradley Thomas has told The Local that the Trentham Community Hub is progressing well and is on track for completion in mid-2023.
“As is the case when working on older buildings, project engineers have identified a few sections of the original building that will need to be replaced to ensure a sound structure for the new hub.
“These sections of the building had previously been inaccessible. It’s important to note that there will be no change to the layout of the new hub or the timeframe for delivery.
“The replacement sections will be reconstructed to the same form, dimensions and style of the original structure and the team will salvage and reuse materials where possible.
“This is a fantastic project for our community and will unite a number of important facilities including the library, visitor information centre, council customer service counter, meeting rooms, along with a multi-functional community hall. We look forward to delivering this project for the community.”
An update by the council on its website has seen quite a few people worried about the redevelopment.
One comment was: “Good to see the Hepburn Shire Council is getting it wrong for all communities within the (shire). Wouldn’t want all the other towns to miss out on the debacle that has been The Rex.”
