​Community presentation about new Grafton Correctional Centre

Publication date: Wednesday, 20 January 2016

Community members are invited to an information session on Wednesday, 3 February 2016 at Tucabia Hall to learn more about the new correctional centre being delivered at Grafton.

Corrective Services Commissioner Peter Severin and Infrastructure NSW Project Director Greg Lake will present an overview on the new centre, the planning and construction program, and opportunities for community involvement.

Two sessions are being held from 1.30pm – 2.30pm and 6.30pm – 7.30pm, with each featuring the same presentation.

The project will be a major boost to the number of jobs in Grafton and economic opportunities in the Clarence Valley and Northern Rivers region. 

It is a long-term investment in the area, and will provide opportunities for local business to register as potential suppliers and contractors.

The facility is an important part of the NSW Government’s prison infrastructure strategy to help create safer communities, and will feature state-of-the-art security and surveillance technology.

It has been designated a state significant development and is expected to open in 2019 after the planning process and a two-year construction period.

The new Grafton correctional centre is one of the first projects to be delivered by Projects NSW, a specialist unit of Infrastructure NSW, which manages priority infrastructure projects. The project will be delivered in close partnership with Corrective Services NSW.

To attend the community information session, please RSVP by Monday, 1 February on​ or call 02 8016 0100.​
