PCYC Concept Design 2015

 

Work commenced on the Police Citizens Youth Club, community spaces and carpark in January 2015. Get the latest update here.  

The design of the community facility, by FJMT, is open and welcoming; providing an inviting and accessible building of quality and durability, specific to site and purpose. Features of the concept design include a curved vaulted roof and a bespoke facade to soften the interface with the street environment, whilst providing natural ventilation to the car park.
 
The building will include:
  • Two multi-use indoor sports courts
  • A youth drop in centre and study area
  • Three multi-purpose community rooms
  • PCYC youth counselling space
  • Café
  • Parking for 348 cars

 

Funding

 

NSW Premier, Barry O'Farrell, announced that Warringah Council will receive State Government funding to go towards building the northern beaches' first Police Youth Citizen's Club in 2012.

Funding is coming from a range of sources including the State Government grant, proceeds from the compulsory aquisition of the Northern Beaches Hospital site, sale of Council land at Dee Why and Section 94 contributions allocated for parking infrastructure at Dee Why.

Parking 

The car park that forms part of the Northern Beaches PCYC project will have a total of 348 spaces.  One level of the car park, being 120 spaces, will provide all day parking for bus commuters. 

This then leaves 228 car parking spaces to be a combination of free public parking for short stay, and paid parking for all day, which includes commuters.  The combination and costs of these parking arrangements is yet to be determined.
