*The design of the childcare centre, gymnastic area and multipurpose courts are determined by operational and statutory requirements and regulations. 



The consultation period was from Tuesday, 22 August to Tuesday, 19 September 2017.

The layout of the centre is set and the community had a chance to provide input into how certain spaces will best serve their needs. Feedback was requested to help inform the detailed design for:  

  • The heart of the centre, a generous community space
  • The aquatic area
  • A gym, health and wellness rooms
  • The private enterprises that may occupy four tenancies for allied health services.

The community's input will inform the Development Application which is due to go to Council in November.
