Council is redeveloping the Mount Waverley Community Centre and Mount Waverley Youth Centre, at 45-47 Miller Crescent, Mount Waverley.
The refurbishment will bring these 1970s buildings into the modern era and provide a comfortable community space where people can participate in a wide range of activities.
As part of these refurbishments, two well-known Mount Waverley organisations - Monash Waverley Community Information and Support Services and The Highway Gallery - will be relocating into the facilities. For more information, see decision to sell Mount Waverley properties.

Council sought community feedback on proposed designs for a major refurbishment of the Mount Waverley Community Centre and Mount Waverley Youth Centre (until 17 May 2017).
Feedback was sought on the designs from both current users of the Community Centre and Youth Centre, and the wider community. We believe the proposed designs will result in vibrant, comfortable and modern community facilities.
Last year, we asked groups and organisations which currently use the facilities to provide input into the refurbishment and to tell Council what works well with the existing buildings, what needs to be retained, and what improvements could be made.
Some of the feedback we received included the need for:
- A PA system and data projector to the main hall
- Improvements to the disabled toilet facilities
- Heating and cooling upgrades
- Improvements to car parking.
Council listened to what groups and organisations had to say and incorporated this feedback into the new designs for the two buildings. All four of these issues raised above will be improved as a result of the refurbishment.
Please note: the drawings do not show details such as the inclusion of a PA system and data projector, as these internal fixtures and items will be cared for as we progress further with the project.
