COMMUNITY consultation for a new Child and Family Learning Centre in Glenorchy has commenced following the Tasmanian Government’s decision to fast-track construction as part of a $3.1 billion construction blitz.

The Glenorchy site will be one of three Child and Family Learning Centres across the state, the others located in project would support jobs for Tasmanians as the state continued to recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The ‘Get Involved’ community consultation is a critical part of determining the design and services each new Child and Family Learning Centre will provide to their community and offers the opportunity for families who will use them to be part of shaping them,” he said.

“The Get Involved campaign for the new Glenorchy, Kingborough and West Ulverstone Child and Family Learning Centres will run from 10 August to 18 September and include a community workshop at each school site, online survey, mailouts and advertising.”

Planning for the other new Child and Family Learning Centres proposed for East Tamar, Waratah Wynyard and Sorell has also progressed, with the Waratah Wynyard and East Tamar projects on track to be operational from July 2022.
