We are planning a new precinct in Hampton to connect all current community services. We are looking at two options which explore different possibilities and need your help to shape the next steps.
Why do we need to change?
Like all of Melbourne, Hampton is growing and changing. We expect the population of Hampton to increase by over 20% in the next 20 years.
With more growth, ageing population and young families moving to Hampton we need to plan for the future.
Currently, several of Hampton’s important community services are operating at different locations in buildings which are not all built for their current purposes, restricting both the services we can deliver and in some cases preventing the opportunity to grow in order to meet future community needs.
In previous consultations we have asked locals what they value most about our current community services and facilities in Hampton.
Based on this feedback, we’ve developed two preliminary options that support these values to create adaptable, contemporary spaces to house all current community services in Hampton, including:
- Space for community groups and adult learning
- Programs and activities that support the needs of seniors groups
- Improved library facilities
- Early years services including kindergartens and maternal and child health
- Parks and playgrounds built for all ages and abilities.
