Otford Hall and Corrimal Preschool to be upgraded under Council plan

WORK on the refurbishment of Otford Community Hall is planned to start later this year.

Wollongong City Council, which is undertaking the refurbishment of several community buildings in the city, said the Otford Hall will be completed early next year. This will involve the full refurbishment of the building, including removal and replacement of external and internal walls, roof, and flooring; kitchen renovations; new accessible toilet, new paths of travel, accessible car parking space; and removal of two disused septic tanks.

The announcement comes as Council undertakes the refurbishment of the Corrimal Preschool kitchen, expected to be completed before the end of this financial year.

Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said the works will be extensive and are expected to take several months to complete.

The hall will be closed to ensure the safety, and regular hirers have been notified and offered temporary relocation options to minimise the impact.

“Works on the Corrimal Community Preschool will only impact the kitchen, and the preschool will continue to operate as usual by providing meal services through alternative means,” Cr Bradbery said.

To hire a community centre or hall visit Council’s Community Centres and Halls page for more information and to book a space.
