State departments set up in one convenient CBD location

FIVE State Government departments in Gladstone have relocated to a central building, with up to 100 staff based at the new services hub.

The departments have taken advantage of the newly constructed development on Herbert St, which was purpose-built so the community can access a range of government services from one convenient location.

The Department of Education, Training and Employment has moved from 21 Dawson Hwy, which it occupied for 10 years, while the Department of Housing and Public Works relocated from 147 Goondoon St, which it occupied for eight years. Both have already moved into the new services hub.

Three other departments are scheduled to move in by the end of June.

The Department of National Parks, Recreation, Sport and Racing and the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection are moving from the corner of Goondoon and Yarroon Sts, which is temporary accommodation they have occupied since mid-last year.

The Department of State Development, Infrastructure and Planning is also relocating from the corner of Goondoon and Yarroon Sts, which it has occupied for eight years.

A Housing Department spokesperson said community members would be able to access a range of government services from the new hub, including advice regarding access to long-term social housing, affordable housing, homelessness services and lodging apprenticeship and traineeship forms.

Leasing space is still available on the ground floor of the building.
