The Zone 8 project included refurbishing the Scout hall with mostly external works to improve functionality and the appearance of the building. These works are now complete.
The Carlisle Scout Group lease fixed term for this site ended some time ago and the Scouts continue to hold the lease on a monthly basis.
The Lathlain Precinct has changed significantly in recent years due to the Lathlain Precinct Redevelopment Project. The Town is working together with the Scouts to identify what their current and future needs are.
We are exploring options for meeting the Scouts needs and requirements, as well as that of the wider community, so we can utilise the site to its greatest potential.
There is no set timeline for achieving this, and there will be no change to the existing lease arrangement until we find a solution which is the best possible outcome for the local community, Town ratepayers and the Scouts.
