Childcare centre given green light at Glen Eden

A NEW child care facility to service Glen Eden and surrounding suburbs was yesterday approved by the Gladstone Regional Council.

The development, on the corner of Victoria Ave and Glenlyon Rd, is expected to accommodate 100 children upon completion.

Proprietor Glenlyon Developments Pty Ltd was unavailable for comment following the approval on Tuesday.

The 1.01ha allotment will comprise five separate activity rooms, as well as a foyer, office, sleeping room, kitchen, storage rooms, reception, laundry, staff quarters and an outdoor area of 715.9sqm.

Eleven jobs are expected to be created as a result of the development.

The proposal for a new childcare centre forms just one component of a previously approved retail centre, including a service station, medical centre and other commercial enterprises.

A completion date for the project is not yet set, although previous council approvals for the larger project will lapse on October 21, 2015.

Deputy mayor Matt Burnett said the facility was a "much needed" resource in the local community.

The proposal was moved by councillor Maxine Brushe, seconded by deputy mayor Matt Burnett and met with favour by the remaining councillors.
