Cobaw Community Health (Cobaw) has been working for many months to secure a site for the new Healthy Community Access Hub. The organisation is pleased to advise valued clients, partners and the community that an agreement has been reached to purchase a site located at 51 Bourke Street, Kyneton. The land is located on the corner of Caroline Chisholm Drive and Bourke Street, and will locate the new site adjacent to Kyneton District Health.

Margaret McDonald, Cobaw CEO, is thrilled about the opportunities this prominent site will offer to the community.

“We are looking forward to designing a unique facility to meet the health and wellbeing needs of the community for many years to come. Being co-located with our long-term partners at Kyneton District Health creates a great opportunity to offer a broad range of services from a single location in Kyneton.”

Whilst the search for a site has been underway, Cobaw has been progressing plans for the building. With the appointment of project management and architect companies finalised in March 2018, quick progress has been made to completing the master plan for the project. This provides the overarching scope for the facility and has resulted in some early concept drawings. This work has been well supported by input from staff teams and community members.

Cobaw looks forward to hosting a community meeting in the coming months to provide an update on project plans.
