  • A great community facility is flexible enough for multipurpose use. It should be able to handle a big crowd in one large space, with dividing movable walls to break into smaller spaces. There should be a kitchen , and individual storage spaces for regular groups to store their equipment/materials. It should be designed to permit flexibility and diversity of uses. Outdoor components should include decking or courtyard with additional gathering spaces. Wheelchair accessibility would be incorporated.the design should appeal to youth as well as adult organisations

We are defining community facilities as places and spaces that provide services and activities that support individuals, families and groups to meet their social and physical needs, strengthen connectivity and maximise their potential and community well being.

Community facilities are spaces for people to meet, learn, socialise, play, exercise and express their culture.
