Planning documentation completed

The State Significant Development Application (SSDA) Response to Submissions was submitted to the Department of Planning in early October which was huge milestone for the project team.

Planning documentation has now been completed.

Minor demolition has commenced with major buildings set to begin in the coming weeks. The decanting of Springfield House, Lady Grose Home and Asset Management will go ahead early November to clear the way for the foundation of the new four storey Clinical Services Building.

Springfield House and Lady Grose Home have played a significant role in the Goulburn Health Service and while historically and architecturally appealing, neither building is heritage listed.

Local Historical Group volunteers, along with members of the project's Arts and Heritage Program, have worked tirelessly to catalogue every historical item, some of which will be featured as displays in the redevelopment.

Staff, patients and consumers have been heavily involved in designing the new building to ensure the space reflects the needs of the community now and well into the future.
