    The next chapter in the Serpentine Jarrahdale Road Board Office building in Mundijong is about to begin, with a Concept Plan to be developed to guide the future of the public building.

    In June 2021, the Serpentine Jarrahdale Council approved the relocation of the Shire’s Library Services to Byford Hall, as well as the development of a Concept Plan for the old library building in Mundijong to accommodate the Shire’s Council Chambers.

    The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale has appointed IA Design, a leading design and architectural consultancy based in Perth, to assist in the development of the Concept Plan.

    Hocking Heritage + Architecture have also been engaged to assist with researching and preparing the heritage brief for the project, which will also inform the Concept Plan.

    Shire President Cr Michelle Rich said the development of a Concept Plan was an opportunity to explore the next chapter of the Mundijong building and celebrate and recognise the building’s rich history.

    “Last year, the Council adopted a Feasibility Study which outlined a staged approach to address the long-term staff accommodation requirements for the Shire,” Cr Rich said.

    “This involves providing the appropriate facilities for our community and staff, and the first step in the process is the re-location of the Council Chambers back to the old Road Board Office building, freeing up space in the current administration building for staff.

    “In the coming months we look forward to involving our community in this project so they can help inform the Concept Plan so we can celebrate and recognise the building’s rich history, as well as identifying opportunities to include community and civic uses within the building.

    “The building has been home to many different Shire services over the years, and will continue to play a key role in our future.
