Help determine the future of the Cooroy Memorial Hall

At Noosa Council's Ordinary Meeting on 17th October 2016, Noosa Council agreed to take over from Cooroy RSL as trustee of the Cooroy Memorial Hall and undertake community consultation to consider options for the future of the Hall.

The consultation aims to:

  • provide information on the Memorial Hall and the challenges faced;
  • understand the community’s thoughts on the Hall and its future;
  • understand current facility needs in the community;
  • gather ideas regarding possible future options for the Hall;
  • understand community capacity for taking ownership over the hall operations and supporting the funding of hall maintenance and operation costs; and
  • explore the option of replacing the Hall with another community space.

On Saturday, 26th November, Council conducted a community forum on the Memorial Hall with over 120 people participating.

There is now the opportunity to share ideas and continue the community discussion through this YourSayNoosa online portal. You can share ideas, ask and answer questions, discuss your thoughts with other community members, download relevant documents and lodge written submissions. This is also the place where Council will keep the community updated on the project.

Council officers will now start to hold smaller stakeholder meetings with organisations and individuals who have expressed an interest in playing a key role in the future of the Hall.

We look forward to your continuing participation on this important topic. The consultation period will be open until 31 Jan 2017.

Following completion of the consultation period, Council will publish an options paper for further community consideration.The forum is open to all members of the community.

  • Community Meeting To Form Hall Association

    11 months ago

    In early 2017 Council will consider a range of options regarding the future of the Memorial Hall. In order for Council to have confidence in repairing and re-opening the hall there needs to be a viable management model. Prior to Christmas, Council officers met with community members who had expressed an interest in working with Council to secure the future of the Hall and consider its ongoing operation.

    Out of this meeting it was agreed that a community meeting would be held in early January to form an incorporated association to potentially work with Council to repair/refurbish the Hall and manage the Hall into the future. Ideally this community organisation would have a range of business, administrative and community skills in the committee and a good governance model in place. Council encourages anyone who has an interest in being part of this association, either in a committee position or as a supporting member, to attend this meeting.
