About Selandra Community Precinct
The Selandra Community Precinct is set to open in late 2017, providing much-needed community infrastructure for the growing Clyde North and Cranbourne East communities. Incorporating a new Integrated Community Centre and Town Square, construction on this $6.6 million project is now underway.
The Integrated Community Centre will provide facilities and spaces for community service organisations to deliver key services and for community groups to come together to participate and connect. Reflecting feedback received from residents during consultation, this ecologically sustainably designed facility incorporates a variety of multipurpose spaces including flexible halls, meeting rooms of varying sizes, a large foyer, exhibition space and a commercial kitchen.
The town square will provide residents with an accessible and vibrant community precinct, creating connectivity between facilities and proving for a range of outdoor community activities and events including an exciting public art collaboration with RMIT University.

The new precinct will be located at 7-11 Selandra Boulevard, Clyde North and will replace the temporary facility, Selandra Community Place. Council will be seeking community feedback early 2017 to assist with naming this great new facility.

Recent construction milestones include:
- completion of concrete pouring and structural steel onsite,
- installation of the eye-catching laminated veneer lumber which will integrate the community centre with the town square,
- completion of timber framing for the internal and external walls
- beginning of window framing and brickwork for the exterior façade
- construction of car parking, and
- progression of the town square.
A partnership with RMIT University will see the installation of an innovative and exciting digital public artwork in the town square. The artwork will respond to different types of touch and will express itself through light, vibration and sound.
