If you’re feeling overwhelmed or drowning in endless paperwork and compliance, you’re not alone. The planning system is complex and can be frustrating for business owners.
Putting together a child care centre application can be extremely hard and tiring and dealing with council can be a nightmare, not to mention the whole process can be very expensive in both time and money. Plus, we’re pretty sure, you have better things to do… That’s where we fit in!
It’s what we do, all day, everyday. With a team of 10+ highly knowledgeable and experienced town planners, property consultants, registered architect and draftsman we’re pretty good at what we do.
Car parking – Some questions you’ll need to ask yourself around car parking are: Will your customers and employees need to drive to get to you? If so can adequate parking be provided? Will there be an adequate area for dropping off and picking up children? Will you be seen to be placing extra burden on existing infrastructure?
Location – Did you know your plan for a child care centre might be stopped before it has begun because the location is not appropriately zoned for a child care centre? Other things for our town planners and designers to consider include the character and ‘amenity’ of the area.
Traffic generation – Child care centres, particularly, tend to generate traffic and specific times of day. How much traffic will you generate and how will it impact the existing infrastructure? Are you servicing parents of a specific area or might you provide childcare for children whose parents do not live or work nearby?
Layout and design to accommodate the child care centre may require physical changes to the building – Do you plan to make structural changes to the building that may require a separate approval? Will changes be required to make the structure safe for the proposed use?
We understand that getting to the point of having the right approval for your child care centre is not an easy journey. It’s one that needs the best experience the industry has to offer. That’s why we’re here to help… We’d love to make your council approval journey for a child care centre simple and as pain free as possible.
We’ve worked on over 40 child care centre projects and have dedicated town planners and designers that specialise in this type of development application.
You can glean from the wisdom we’ve gained from all of our past projects. 25 years of being in the industry and our 50 consecutive years of experience has taught us a few things.
