SPRUHAN AVE HUB REDEVELOPMENT PLANS UNDERWAY

We have some great news for our community in Norlane with the recent announcement that a significant funding contribution from COGG has been approved. These funds will contribute to the development fund for the Norlane Community Initiatives Hub in Spruhan Ave Norlane. The development includes an on-site 5 bedroom community development residence built by Hamlan Homes and nearing completion. We thank the Percy Baxter Foundation for their significant financial contribution to this aspect of the project. The redevelopment of our Spruhan Ave site will greatly support our work as we continue to grow towards our vision of a thriving and healthy Norlane.

RELATIONAL. PARTICIPATORY. ORGANIC.

Norlane Community Initiatives is a community led place making organisation with the vision to create healthy, sustainable and inclusive neighbourhoods. NCI has recently been established to assume localised management of the community work previously managed by Urban Seed for the past 14 years in Geelong. The mission of NCI is to cultivate and generate community and place utilising a holistic whole-of-person and whole-of-neighbourhood approach. The work is highly relational, participatory, organic, strengths based and transformative and centres around love of people and love of place.
