Friday, Sept 25th 2015 : Come and watch the spectacle in the making on 40 Byth Street, Arundel: Tree clearing – Sunday Sept 27th 2015 at 8:30am

Following the spectacular advances in the last few weeks, and council approval for tree clearance, we would like to commence preliminary work on the land. As a first step we have engaged tree loppers from Brisbane to do the honours. They are all doing this gratuitously. The first phase of this clearing would involve clearing the land to do the soil test and bring in the infrastructure services. This phase would include clearing the service road pathway and pathway to borehole location. Please come and watch the spectacle unfold on this Sunday, Sept 27th 2015 at 8:30am. If you are brave, you can also join the tree loppers. All are cordially invited!

    Feb 2015: DA approved by the Gold Coast City Council

GCHCA is pleased to inform the public of the final outcome of the Development Application (DA) for a Hindu Cultural Precinct in Gold Coast. The Gold Coast City Council (GCCC) has approved the Development Application (DA) for the Hindu precinct consisting of a place of worship, multi-purpose hall, Education centre, cultural education centre, community hall, community square and caretaker’s residence. As you may recall, GCHCA lodged this DA a while ago with the Gold Coast City Council (GCCC) for the property location at 9 Dunkirk Close, Arundel. This monumental achievement would not have been possible without the close co-operation of the entire community. The support of the community has been rock solid. We received support in numerous and unexpected ways. Apart from joining in the GCHCA membership initiatives like Life membership and Thousand Families for Murugan, community volunteers devoted many hours helping the GCHCA in many other ways like joining us in our food stall at the Gold Coast Multicultural Festival, volunteering at the GCHCA navaratri festival, etc. Even our DA was prepared with the help of voluntary services provided by the architects, engineers and the likes from the community. This victory belongs to the community and GCHCA sincerely wishes to thank the community for backing this project.

As we rejoice and move towards the next stage, we may need to depend on the community even further. We look forward to your continued participation.

The Gold Coast Hindu Cultural Association seeks the ongoing support of members of the community to take this vision to the second stage. Please contact us on gchcan@gmail.com for further information regarding the various ways you could join the initiative.

Tax-deductible donations to GCHCA can be made using a credit card or bank transfer to the GCHCA Building Donation Account: BSB 064-474 Account: 1048 8900

We look forward to your support.

Thank you,

Yours truly,

Management Committee
The Gold Coast Hindu Cultural Association
