Yamba Community Precinct

Working with precinct partners to investigate Stage 1 of parking development

Yamba Community Precinct is currently at this stage - Clarence Valley Council, TAFE NSW and NSW Health are working together to plan for the 'next stage' of parking. An extension is expected to be in by next year but it still requires some discussion.

Council has budgeted $50,000 for a detailed design for the parking behind the TAFE in this financial year and has allocated funds once this is complete, along with a TAFE contribution, to formalise at least half the carparks. The carpark will be constructed to prevent use by skaters. For answers to frequently asked questions, head over to our FAQ's tab.

The creation of a community precinct in Yamba has been slowly becoming a reality, over the last ten years. While the Community Centre and ambulance stations are well valued, there were are services needed for the growing population; our library needs to be bigger, education is vital and more space for our community to gather and prosper. Current partners all support future growth of the Precinct.

TAFE NSW: have began operating out of their Connected Learning Centre, behind the Community Centre at Treelands Drive, Yamba - this facility is amazing and must be seen to be believed - please feel free to pop in for a visit.

Future proposed redevelopments: will bring Yamba Library, Wooli St Hall, Meals on Wheels, a gallery and community space into the Precinct. For more information, check out the concept designs in YCP Documents tab. The concept gives an idea of the cost to build the dream. Unfortunately, dreams cost money and finding this money is the next step. Watch the news to see how this develops.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

  • Surely all these extra community facilities in one spot will make Treelands Drive an even busier street than it is now? If you look at intelligent community planning (e.g. Canberra), you find government organisations widely distributed throughout the city, thereby limiting traffic chaos. Given we'd have Yamba Fair and the new Westlawn service station just down the road where Treelands intersects Yamba Rd,, and commercial activity elsewhere in Treelands Drive, we seem to be putting all our bits and pieces in one small area - while this may prove beneficial to individuals wanting to go to several council service centres at once, it makes no sense from a traffic planning viewpoint to me?

    Yambaman, thank you for your comment and feedback.

    Late in 2018, CVC were notified our grant application was unsuccessful and therefore the proposed redevelopment will not go ahead, at this point.  Council will now be looking at other options.

    On a positive note for the Lower Clarence, TAFE NSW’s Connected Learning Centre in Yamba has been powering away. It is due to open very shortly.  CVC is yet to be advised of an opening date, so stay tuned for more updates on the grand opening.

    Stay tuned for more updates.
