Approval has been given by Central Coast Council for the development of a $1.2m childcare centre at 2 Bryant Dve, Tuggerah.
According to a Council assessment report, the applicant was Oz Education Pty Ltd and the owner was listed as Aventus Tuggerah Pty Ltd.
The site is located within the 71,570 square metre Tuggerah Super Centre, and is zoned B5 Business Development.
The land is currently occupied by a bulky goods centre and associated car parking.
The proposal is for the occupation and fitout of Tenancy 29 as a child care centre, with a total floor space of 365 square metres indoor, and 910 square metres simulated outdoor, to cater for a maximum capacity of 102 children.
The proposal includes modification to the approved skylights and replacement of some roof sheets with polycarbonate, and amendment to the approved wall penetrations from 17 to 10.
The development is expected to generate employment for 30 staff members.
“The subject site contains a Bunnings Warehouse building to the south, which is connected to a two storey multi-tenancy bulky goods and factory outlet centre to the north, known as the Tuggerah Super Centre,” the assessment report said.
“The centre contains a rooftop car parking area containing 129 car parking spaces and a further 629 car parking spaces are located at-grade,” the report said.
Part of the site is flood affected and located within the 100m vegetation bushfire buffer.
According to the assessment report, the centre is proposed to incorporate a range of open plan and self-contained rooms and play areas, as well as two cot rooms, bottle prep room, laundry, store areas, toilets, kitchen, office and a reception area.
The simulated outdoor space will include two playgrounds, including tree structures, sand pits, moveable play equipment, a green wall, aquarium, aviary and landscaping.
One additional car parking space will be created over an existing sealed area.
Twelve car parking spaces, including pram spaces, are to be signposted as parking for the child care centre between 7 to 9am and 3 to 6pm, Monday to Friday.
Outside those hours, these car parking spaces will remain for the general use of the overall bulky goods centre.
