Soil Turned at Manning Community Hub

The City of South Perth marked a milestone last Friday when PACT Construction Pty Ltd., together with the City’s Mayor, Council members and CEO, turned the first soil for the construction of the highly anticipated Manning Community Hub facility.

The Manning Community Hub is a multi million dollar project that aims to create a new ‘heart’ for Manning and provide the community with a vibrant, connected and attractive precinct integrating community services and social activities.

The facility will include the relocated Manning Library, a community hall, Manning Child Health Clinic, Moorditj Keila Aboriginal Group, a sporting clubroom to house the Manning Rippers Football Club and an early years’ centre that will become the homes of both the Manning Toy Library and a new Manning Playgroup.

Located between Bradshaw Crescent and Conochie Avenue in Manning, the new facility will adjoin James Miller Oval and will be centrally located close to the Welwyn Avenue shops, the Manning Senior Citizens Centre and Manning Primary School.

Construction of the Manning Community Hub Facility is expected to be completed by the end of 2016.
