WCG provided consultancy services to The Spot, a non-profit organisation, to obtain approval for a Community Facility within the Southlink Business Park in Parkinson. The project involved construction of a purpose-built “Regional Youth Services Hub” to provide employment and counselling services, meeting rooms, hall, prayer room (church) and ancillary indoor sports and recreation space. The site is located within a Light Industry Zone, although it is also co-located near a range of community uses/services in the area, and the proposed activities had a clear nexus between providing a community service and leveraging light industry business employment opportunities for youth.
