Some Council centres and services relocating to Philip Street Precinct
GRC's Community Engagement and Neighbourhood centres will soon relocate from their existing buildings to new purpose-built facilities at the Philip Street Communities and Families Precinct.
Services at the Community Engagement Centre at 142 Goondoon Street have now paused to allow staff to complete the move, while the Neighbourhood Centre at 105 Toolooa Street will have a staggered close.
Gladstone Region Mayor Matt Burnett said both centres will re-open to the community from the Philip Street Communities and Families Precinct in mid-August.
“There will be a transition period for customers while the office is closed and referrals can still be provided over the phone,” Councillor Burnett said.
“The precinct will be the first of its kind in Queensland, with local government partnering with the community to deliver human and social services.
“Being in the same location will strengthen relationships amongst partners, allowing ease of referrals and providing people with easy access to services in the one location.”
The precinct has been designed to strengthen Gladstone’s social service sector, foster inclusion, connectedness and increase access to resources and services.
It also offers visitors the opportunity to enjoy the parklands and gardens that have been developed specifically to enhance the buildings on site.
