Emerald Arts Precinct


In November 2018, council began exploring options to develop the Emerald Library, community gardens and surrounding buildings into a multipurpose arts precinct. The project aims include:

  • support local economy and artists
  • grow arts, heritage and cultural tourism and appreciation
  • provide access to arts, heritage and cultural activities and modern library services
  • create a welcoming and inclusive safe space
  • enhance community wellbeing and encourage diversity.

To include community in developing a concept, council sought ideas and feedback from local stakeholders, and conducted a survey in January – February 2019. The input received helped to inform a draft masterplan, which was tabled at a council meeting in December 2019. Due to logistical challenges identified in the planning process, further development of the masterplan has been deferred to February 2021.

For further information about this project, please contact Suzanne Poulter, Manager Connected Communities on 1300 242 686.

    On Monday 4 February 2019, architect Chris Pritchett will be at the Emerald Library for a drop-in session, and walk through of the site. This follows initial stakeholder engagements held in December 2018, where Chris was available to engage with current users of this space. The second engagement will help Chris to understand what the broader community aspire to in the development of this space. As part of this engagement, ideas for a new name for the precinct will be sought.
