Statement from Mayor Bill Moar – Our Place

Yesterday Councillors considered a rescission motion regarding the site for the new iconic Our Place building.

Councillors have resolved once again, to proceed with the construction of the Our Place building at site option 1 inside the Pioneer Settlement.

This decision will still require the retention of the windmill and locomotive on the Pioneer Settlement grounds and that an investigation of the required repair works for the Pental Island Bridge is undertaken.

Council will now commence work to determine options to relocate the locomotive and windmill and begin this consultation process.

Detailed designs will now be developed and further community consultation will take place once they are completed.
