The current premises of WLALC were originally developed for the Regional Aboriginal Land Council (RALC), financed with contributions from regional Local Aboriginal Land Council’s including substantial contributions from WLALC.
After the RALC structure became defunct, the assets of the RALCs were transferred to New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council (NSWALC). The WLALC has accepted the offer from the NSWALC to transfer title of the current premises to Wagonga LALC. The WLALC is currently organising a scope of works on all the cyclical maintenance required to enable the LALC to comply with the Work Health & Safety Act 2011.
There is community need and demand to expand and improve the WLALC premises to create a more formal Indigenous Business Hub. More office space is required. More work-stations for temporary and/or casual use are required. There is a current plan to renovate that will focus on the central area of the building, which is under-utilised and not functional.
The new look WLALC premises would be promoted as providing a stable Indigenous Business Hub, to assist local Indigenous people with; job applications (phone and computer), central meeting rooms for interviews, conferences and training, notice board for advertisement of jobs and local programs. The conference room is already hired out on a casual basis to local businesses, and this will continue.
