The Glen Waverley Civic Precinct is located off Kingsway, adjacent to the Monash Civic Centre and includes the current Glen Waverley library.

Planning for the Glen Waverley Civic Precinct Project has taken another step forward with the awarding of the tender to ARM Architecture, who will now prepare schematic designs and a report for Council.

ARM Architecture will revisit a feasibility study for the project, completed in 2020, and begin pre-planning for this significant project.

The feasibility study evaluated the ability of the Civic Precinct site (adjacent to the Civic Centre) to be redeveloped. The redevelopment includes a multi-purpose building containing a library, community meeting spaces, staff accommodation, a large hall for the hosting of citizenship ceremonies (among other uses), improved public open space and underground car parking.

The study addressed issues including:

  • The current dated condition of the Glen Waverley library (the building was constructed in 1973)
  • The lack of dedicated space for civic ceremonies and large gatherings within the Glen Waverley Activity Centre
  • The opportunities that exist to secure long term office accommodation for current and future staff levels.

Community consultation

Community consultation forms a major part of the design process. Council is keen to hear from precinct stakeholders to ensure any design captures the community’s needs. We will gather information online on this page and through meetings with user groups,

Once the design work and community consultation are completed, Council will determine whether to proceed with a detailed design and, ultimately, whether to construct the new building.

How to give feedback

Consultation on the schematic design will commence in 2023.
