There was opportunity for small group discussions on particular topics, information booths, an onsite workshop and an online survey. The consultation allowed opportunity for feedback and submissions on any aspect of the project, and had particular focus on:

    • Development of a Fair Use policy to provide fair and equitable access to the Bondi Pavilion Cultural and Community Centre
    • The appropriate mix of uses on the first floor
    • Theatre operations, technology and programming
    • Gallery and exhibition space programming
    • Music facilities and programs in the building and in Waverley
    • Consideration of how best to interpret the heritage of Bondi Pavilion and Bondi, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage and identifying opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural activities, art, information, education and business to be included in the Pavilion project

    The reports on the recent consultation is now available.You can view them here.

    On Tuesday 15 November, Council voted to proceed with Phase 1 of the renovations of the iconic Bondi Pavilion.

    Phase 1 will focus on some critical needs of the building and adjacent works. This includes in the northern courtyard:

    • Building new and larger toilet facilities
    • Environmentally sustainable design measures including improved waste facilities
    • A new gallery/exhibition/museum space
    • Pottery, kiln and music studio facilities.
    • Landscaped courtyards and outdoor seating with space for the community to relax.

    Phase 1 will also include roof replacement and external façade works for the whole building.

    Council agreed to defer any decision on the rest of the project until after the next Council is elected, expected to be September 2017. This includes decisions about use of the upper level, the proposed new theatre and changes to existing music studios and the High Tide Room. Those future decisions will be informed by the community consultation reports that have already been produced and new reports that will include a Business Case, Fair Use Policy, Theatre Programming and Management and Cultural and Community impact assessment.

    It is expected that a Development Application for Phase 1 works will be submitted in February 2017. Plans will then be subject to a statutory exhibition process and members of the public will have a further opportunity to provide comment. Construction of Phase 1 would be expected to take about 12 months, commencing late 2017 or the early months of 2018

    Decisions about the first floor and other parts of the project will take place after the next Council elections, expected to occur in September 2017.
