Shellharbour Civic Centre




Shellharbour Civic Centre is being built in the commercial and retail ‘heart’ of the Shellharbour local government area.

The civic centre (formerly known as the 'City Hub') will provide community facilities including  a civic square for public events, a Council Chamber , library and museum, auditorium, sessional and Council administration offices, and on-site parking. The design of the complex is based on sound environmental design practices.

Planning for the key facilities in the civic centre goes back more than 20 years.  The site now earmarked for the civic centre is the corner of College and Cygnet Avenues, Shellharbour City Centre, just across from Stockland Shellharbour.

On 11 June 2015, Council resolved to proceed with construction of the civic centre and operable development consent provided by the Joint Regional Planning Panel 26 August 2015. Works began in October 2015 with completion due the end of  2017.

With Shellharbour City's population set to grow to more than 79,000 by 2031, it will help ensure residents have the facilities required now and in the future.
