New Bingara Library project to commence soon

December 4, 2018

The new Bingara Library to be located within the Bingara Civic Centre is progressing towards commencement after designs were approved by Council last Thursday. The project, which is being co-funded through the NSW State Libraries Public Infrastructure Fund and the NSW Governments Stronger Country Communities Fund, is expected to commence within the next few months.

At Council’s Information Technology and Buildings Assets Committee meeting held last Thursday 8th November, a project draft design report was presented showing the proposed layout, concepts and visual design. The committee was very pleased with the design and project direction and voted to adopt and proceed with the project as per the tabled designs.

The new facility will be a modern, purpose built facility with a functional layout and designs which are strongly in-line with public’s vision for a contemporary, functional and modern community space.

The construction of the new facility will be primarily undertaken by Council staff with some specialist contractors, trades and products to be sourced where needed. Interested parties are invited to attend the planned open sessions for an on-site walk through where the draft designs and plans will be on display and staff will be available to answer questions.

Open sessions will held from 12.00pm to 2.00pm on Tuesday 20th and Thursday 22nd November and the following week on Tuesday 4th and Thursday 6th December.

Copies of the project draft design report are also available for viewing at the Bingara Council Offices, the current Library facilities or as part of the Bingara and District – Vision 20/30 display at the Emporium Building in Bingara.

The Draft Plans also appear on Council’s Website.
