OFFICE space for community groups is still available in a community centre that will be completed in October.

A Tweed Shire Council spokesman said the Murwillumbah Community Centre in Knox Park would be completed in October if there were no weather delays.

The council's community capacity building officer Jenni Funari said the new centre was designed to bring a lot of different services and programs together, to best serve the community.

"By locating services together, people who come to the centre will be able to find the right person to talk to, or any number of people, all in the same place," Ms Funari said.

"For services, it means they can better understand the work that each other does and how they can work together to meet the needs of the people coming to the community centre.

"There is strong interest already from organisations we have been talking to over many years in planning for the building and applying for grants."

Not-for-profit community services that have already taken up tenancy offers include the Northern Rivers Community Legal Service, The Family Centre Community Projects, the Northern Rivers YWCA, Save the Children Australia and On Track Community Services.
