Hazelwood House

Quantum Support Services has notified Latrobe City Council on its decision to withdraw from the purchase of Hazelwood House in Churchill.

Quantum Support Services Chief Executive Officer Natalie McDonald said despite discussions with potential partners who shared our vision, the timelines for realising these partnerships and completing the necessary due diligence and funding arrangements remained uncertain.

“This uncertainty poses challenges for our ability to move forward with the project,” Ms McDonald said.

“Hazelwood House presented a unique opportunity to provide a safe and supportive environment for youth in our community. Quantum expresses its sincere gratitude to Latrobe City Council for the opportunity to explore the possibility of bringing a Youth Foyer to Churchill.”
Latrobe City CEO Steven Piasente said Quantum advised Council of its decision late September.

“Latrobe City Council has worked in collaboration with Quantum to support the organisation throughout the sale process,” Mr Piasente said.

The property, located at 59-94 Philip Parade, Churchill, was unanimously approved for sale to Quantum Support Services by Latrobe City Council during its September 2022 meeting, following an extensive expressions of interest process initiated in 2021.

The next steps for Hazelwood House will be the subject of discussion and consideration by Latrobe City Council.
