Cobblebank Community Services Hub Takes Next Step


The City of Melton’s new community services hub project has taken its next step after Council voted on its masterplan report.

Three building design options were presented as part of the Cobblebank Community Services Hub masterplan report, with the six-storey building the preferred option.

The purpose-built facility will provide space a range of community, allied health, and education services to help address critical service shortages across the municipality as well as providing office space for commercial tenants.

The 5 Star Green Star building received interest from 18 prominent community service providers during an EOI process undertaken in mid-2022, leading Council to explore the project’s expansion.

It will provide an accessible and affordable space to deliver important services like mental health and family services, as well as culturally specific services for the City’s diverse communities.

Council has secured $4 million from the Victorian Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund, and another application to the state’s Growth Areas Infrastructure Contribution has been submitted.

The hub will be located within the growing Cobblebank Metropolitan Activity Centre on the corner of Hollingsworth and Stadium Drives, close to the Cobblebank Stadium, new Melton Hospital site and the Cobblebank Train Station.
