Revitalising Awaba House

Awaba House exterior

On Tuesday 20 August 2019, a fire broke out in Awaba House leaving only part of the facade remaining. Almost all of the remainder of the building was destroyed. The remains are currently undergoing an assessment to determine if any heritage aspects can be retained in a replacement structure.

To assist in determining appropriate options that align with community values, Council is establishing a Community Reference Group (CRG) consisting of Lake Macquarie residents and those with a genuine interest in the outcomes of Awaba House its surrounds.

Applications for the CRG are now closed.

There will be further opportunities in the future to provide feedback on the options proposed for Awaba House.
