Works Start on Groundbreaking Sunbury Learning Centre
Member for Sunbury Josh Bull today announced the start of works on the Hume Global Learning Centre in Sunbury.
The $19 million project is supported by the Victorian Government through a $3 million Growing Suburbs Fund (GSF) grant.
Mr Bull said the new centre, located on Sunbury’s Macedon Street, will add a new element to social and educational infrastructure for Western Melbourne communities.
The site will include a state of the art digital library, technology and equipment hub and flexible multi-purpose community and activity meeting spaces including meeting and interview rooms.
It will also deliver a multiversity/computer and training space, conference facilities, cultural space, council customer services and spaces for business incubation or co-working.
Hume City Council has contributed $16 million towards the project.
Works are expected to be completed by June 2019.
Through the GSF, Victorian Government has contributed a total of $13.795 million to Hume City Council, including a $4.075 million allocation for upgrades to the Arena Pavilion and McMahon Recreation Reserve through the 2017-19 GSF round.
