The development of a new childcare centre to be situated on Boundary Street has been given approval by Bundaberg Regional Council.
The decision comes after a Material Change of Use was recently submitted by applicant I Murphy to transform the current site of a single-storey, four bedroom Queenslander dwelling into a childcare centre.
Plans include dividing 668 square metres into five classrooms and featuring two sleep rooms for children aged up to two years old.
A kitchen, staff rooms, reception, office, waiting room and car parking areas are also included in the development documents.
The application states the childcare centre is designed to accommodate 90 children from 0 to five years old as well as 12 staff and volunteers.
“The proposed centre is to operate Monday to Friday 6.30 am to 6.30 pm and is to be serviced by 18 onsite car parking spaces and three on street car parking spaces,” the proposal states.
“Shade trees and landscaping in the carpark and surrounding the building are proposed.
“The proposed facility is to be constructed on a raised structure rather than an on-ground construction.
“The layout of the structure includes a large outdoor deck area for free/outdoor play and has been designed in a way that provides noise attenuation for surrounding sensitive land uses.”
The childcare centre will be developed at 21 Boundary Street, Bundaberg South.
