Makeover at 257 Dorset Road, Boronia

257 Dorset Road Boronia is the site of the former Boronia Youth Hall, which was demolished in early 2019 to create a temporary open space for community.

The long-term use of the site has not been determined and it is expected that this site will be available in its current state for 2-3 years.

Community Consultation

From 30 October to 2 December 2019, Council asked the community to share their ideas in relation to the temporary uses of the site located at 257 Dorset Road, Boronia.

Thank you to all those that shared their ideas at the pop-up community engagement and activations events in November 2019, as well as online.

The ideas and information provided by the community will assist Council with the next steps for the temporary site.

Consultation Results

Installation of seating and planter boxes

Council is happy to advise that based on community feedback, seating, planter boxes and plants have been installed on site. This will create a more inviting space for community to sit and enjoy.

More updates are to follow on the temporary uses of the site.

Why was the hall demolished?

The former Boronia Youth Hall has been demolished because it had reached the end of its useful life.

There are a number of similar venues available in the Boronia area which are better equipped and more appropriate for community use.

It is unlikely the hall will be rebuilt.

Future use of this site

The long term use of this site, beyond the current temporary open space, has not yet been determined.

The Boronia Renewal Strategy will provide more information about the future of this site once finalised. In the meantime, we will use the space to provide better access to the station and other potential uses.
