Project nearing completion

Progress continues to construct the new Duke of Kent community building.

The internal fit-out has reached an advanced stage, with almost all components now in place.

Recent activities include:

  • tiling the kitchen, kitchenettes, and toilets
  • installing an internet connection
  • connecting CCTV
  • installing a soundproof wall divider.

On the exterior front, the following work has been recently completed:

  • installing footpaths
  • establishing stormwater and sewer systems.

Remaining tasks include constructing the carpark and landscaping.

Construction is expected to be completed in October 2023, weather permitting.

Council is taking steps to arrange routine cleaning, gardening, and maintenance services.

The new building is being integrated into the Council's booking system for community groups to access when it is complete.

Project Information

The building will be used by the Wagga Wagga Veterans and Vintage Motor Club, University of the Third Age (U3A) and other community groups.

The key features of the new building will include:

  • large meeting area that can be divided into two spaces by a sound-proof movable wall
  • two small meeting rooms
  • kitchen with a servery facing the meeting room and another facing the outdoor area
  • outdoor covered area
  • solar panels
  • parking for 22 vehicles including accessible parking

Importantly, for the vintage car club, the site will include a loop driveway that extends through the outdoor covered area. Access to the covered area will allow veteran and vintage vehicles to be inspected for roadworthy certificates.

This project is proudly funded by Wagga Wagga City Council.

Once completed, the building will be a new home for the Wagga Wagga Veteran & Vintage Motor Club and the University of the Third Age.

It will also provide a safe, accessible and flexible space in central Wagga Wagga for other community groups to use.
