TREES were cleared across a large parcel of vacant land at Boandik Lake Terrace recently ahead of the construction of a $4.8m wellbeing centre.
Earth works will be completed at the site before construction begins early next year.
Concept plans for the building include a gymnasium, change rooms, treatment rooms, outdoor rehabilitation space and a long-awaited hydrotherapy pool.
Boandik chief executive Gillian McGinty said while a detailed design was still being developed, clearing the trees and preparing the site marked the next phase of the project.
“The concept design is now being developed into a detailed design and the tender process will likely begin in November,” Ms McGinty told The Border Watch.
