Redevelopment of Harold Box Hall and Dingley Village Library

The Dingley Village Library and neighbourhood house precinct is set for an overhaul.

We're seeking your feedback on draft plans to redevelop Harold Box Hall and the library.

The $3.25 million project will redevelop the old, tired library, provide new meeting and interactive spaces and provide better connections to the neighbourhood house.

The redeveloped precinct will support innovation, flexibility and creativity, and better meet the needs of our current and future Dingley community.

A masterplan has been developed for the site, with works to be split into two stages.

Stage 1 has been fully funded thanks to $2.5 million funding from Council and $750,000 from the Victorian Government’s Living Libraries fund.

Proposed Stage 1 works include:

  • library refurbishment
  • new outdoor space connected to the library
  • refurbishment of Harold Box Hall to support more flexible uses of space
  • new kiosk / kitchen and reception areas
  • connecting foyer and external deck area to support future integration of the two buildings
  • relocation of Maternal and Child Health service from Harold Box Hall to improved facilities in the Neighbourhood House building.

If you have any questions about the project, feel free to contact our Community Buildings team on 1300 653 356 or email info@kingston.vic.gov.au.
