New ECEC service proposed to replace houses in Duncraig, a northern Perth suburb
A new early childhood education and care (ECEC) service has been proposed for Duncraig, a suburb of Perth, replacing two houses located at 68 and 70 Readshaw Road.
The development application outlines a proposal to demolish the two existing houses, and build a single story ECEC service with undercover parking, and an outdoor play space, catering for over 90 children and nearly 20 staff.
Standard opening hours, Monday through Friday and between 6:30am and 6:30pm, are proposed for the service, which, according to the development application has been designed to integrate with its surrounding suburban context.
Consultants have been employed by the developer to ensure acoustics, traffic control and landscaping are fit for purpose for the site, with the development application noting that the repurposing of the two properties will “significantly enhance the amenity of the subject site, and will improve the built form response to the intersection of Marmion Avenue and Readshaw Road, which is an estate entrance into Duncraig.”
The facility will offer a positive contribution to the Duncraig community by contributing to an existing demand for essential early learning services.
