Working with the community

Council is continuing to work with interested community members and groups to arrange a heritage assessment of the building. This follows Council's unanimous vote to undertake additional engagement with the community to determine the future of the building.

The $42.1 million Gippsland Performing Arts Centre project has been made possible by collaborative investment from the:

  • Victorian Government ($12 million)
  • Australian Government's Community Development Grants Programme ($10 million)
  • Latrobe City Council ($20 million)

The Latrobe Visitor Information Centre will open every day from 10.00am to 4.00pm at 32 Kay Street, Traralgon.

Results to be shared with the community

Mayor of Latrobe City Cr Kellie O'Callaghan said, "We can't wait to welcome visitors to this purpose-built facility in the Gippsland Performing Arts Centre. Our Visitor Information Centre is a valued touchpoint for people visiting our region and also to locals who might be planning a trip to other parts of the wider Gippsland region."

"We would like to assure our community that no further decisions have been made about the future of the Old Methodist Church. Council is currently undertaking a procurement process to arrange a heritage assessment for the building. Following the assessment, we will share the results with the community and undertake further engagement to determine the next steps." Cr Callaghan said.
