Closed since 2011, the decision was made earlier this year to reopen the facility which will house 75 minimum-security male inmates.

A Corrective Services spokeswoman said it was part of a long-term infrastructure plan to cater for the rising prisoner population.

It is part of the Better Prisons program which includes creating more than 1100 new beds across the state.

Member for Goulburn said reopening the correctional centre would benefit the Highlands community.

“It means our gardens and public spaces may be tended by prisoners from this minimum security prison,” she said.

“That’s a great improvement for the Southern Highlands.

“I understand it will also mean employment opportunities for local residents and I hope local businesses will be able to supply goods and services to the prison.”

Ms Goward said when the new facilities were completed, prisoners would be housed in “fit for purpose” modern facilities and prisons like Berrima would be available for redevelopment.

“This is all good news for the Southern Highlands.”

Corrective Services NSW is undertaking painting and plumbing works at the centre ahead of the opening next month.

The gaol was closed in late 2011 and the site has been maintained by Correctional Services NSW (CSNSW) and the local community.

Berrima Rotary has made use of the site over two long weekends to raise funds for community projects.

Ms Goward said details were being worked out between Corrective Services and the Wingecarribee Shire Council.

When it was first announced the gaol would reopen, Wingecarribee Shire mayor Larry Whipper said he supported the decision.

“This is great news for both Berrima and the greater Shire,” Councillor Whipper said.

“It will ensure the heritage listed gaol is both protected and put to good use at the same time.”

“As part of the re-opening we will also be investigating how Council can work with the NSW State Government in providing inmates with meaningful local training and community service opportunities,” he said.
