Dalyellup Beach awarded Lotterwest grant
Dalyellup Beach estate in the south-west of WA has been awarded a $1.9 million Lotterywest grant for a new community space.
The Dalyellup Multipurpose Community and Youth Centre (DMCYC) will contain:
  • Cutting-edge digital and creative hub
  • Performance and rehearsal spaces
  • Innovative library and learning centre
  • Outdoor meeting and event space
  • Flexible, chill-out youth zones
  • Visitor and tourism information and servicing
  • Satellite Shire of Capel customer services
  • Hot office/desk facilities

Shire of Capel President Doug Kitchen said the key elements of the multifaceted project were borne out of a community engagement process, with the design and function of the facility responding to the strongly voiced future needs of the community.

“In 2021 we engaged with stakeholders and the wider community about what they would like to see in their community. This confirmed to us the real need for a purpose-built facility for our youth that would also incorporate a larger, permanent home for our library, digital hub to learn the skills of tomorrow and function / meeting rooms for our community to connect and share. The design is inclusive, flexible, connected to the landscape and unique.

During our consultations and workshops, we found there was a real desire for a digital space, so we are excited about this part of the facility. It will allow our youth opportunities for skill development, leading to higher level education and potential employment opportunities. The interest in this space already expressed by some of our local and regional education providers is great to see.” he said.
