Bondi Pavilion Community and Cultural Impact Assessment

Waverley Council

We completed a cultural and community use impact assessment of the Bondi Pavilion with NSF Consulting. This project identified and evaluated the significance of the Pavilion as a cultural and community facility, to inform and measure potential impacts of the proposed changes on the cultural and community values and uses of this site and to inform the development of future management of the Pavilion. We conducted a Contribution Analysis, an evaluation/impact assessment approach which aims to compare changes to the Bondi Pavilion to come to robust conclusions about the contribution that it is likely to make to observed outcomes. Given the very strong connection to and ownership that the local community in particular feel for the building, the study was conducted with sensitivity and also through rigorous research and a strong evidence base.
