JD Hardie Youth & Community Hub

Brief Description:

JDHYCH is Port Hedland’s principal youth precinct. So popular has the provision of an air-conditioned indoor activity space for youth (and children) that the centre is now in desperate need of expansion and associated improvements. Shaded outdoor courts will provide accommodation for ongoing recreational pursuits in the harsh climate. The proposed redevelopment program will not only address the recreation and social needs of local youth and children, it will also serve as a primary welfare and community emergency centre. Other key objectives addressed by the Masterplan are to formalise foot traffic flow through the undeveloped land in the precinct and help to alleviate Port Hedland’s significant shortages in childcare provisions.
