Bridgetown co-location plan supported

BRIDGETOWN-Greenbushes Shire Council’s investigation into the feasibility of co-locating a range of community, education and sporting facilities has won the backing of the South West Development Commission.

Chairman Stuart Morgan said the Commissions’ Warren-Black-wood manager Jeremy Threlfall had worked with the Bridgetown-Greenbushes Shire Council to prepare a consultant’s brief for a feasibility study into the concept, and the Commission would share the cost of the study with the council.

“The concept is for the establishment of the Bridgetown Commun-ity Campus, built around the new recreation centre, which has already received $1 million in support from the Department of Sport and Recreation,” Mr Morgan said.

“Co-location of facilities such as existing education, childcare, information technology and sporting activities offers an opportunity for the Bridgetown community and the wider Warren-Blackwood sub-region to maximise the resources available.

“For example, community, sporting and education groups could share administration costs or facilities and equipment such as office space, computers, telephones and so on,” he said.

The study will begin with the appointment of a consultant.
