Thank you for your interest in this project. We are currently reviewing your feedback which will inform the final design.

The EcoCentre delivers sustainability education, services and support to our Port Phillip and wider Melbourne community. Over the past 15 years, its programs and services have increased substantially to support more than 19,000 participants annually.

The City of Port Phillip has a long standing strategic partnership with the EcoCentre which includes the provision of annual funding and a five-year lease agreement for use of the premises in the St Kilda Botanical Gardens.

The current EcoCentre building has reached the end of its structural life and is no longer fit for purpose. A new building will increase the EcoCentre's ability to deliver sustainability programs, meet compliance requirements, and provide a leading example of environmentally sustainable design.

We have been working closely with the EcoCentre to develop designs for a proposed redevelopment of the site. The delivery of this project is subject to partnership funding.

To maximise partnership funding opportunities the redevelopment may need to be delivered in two stages. Partnership funding for the first stage will deliver a modern fit-for-purpose building to meet the current level of service, while partnership funding for the second stage will accommodate expanded programs and services, and increased community use.

What's happened so far?

In February and March we asked the community to provide feedback on this concept plan to help inform the next stages of the design.

What's next?

Community feedback will be analysed and used to support the development of detailed designs and to inform applications for partnership funding.
