City of South Perth to reassess Como day care proposal after SAT hearing

AN approved application for a child day care centre on Barker Avenue in Como has been contested at the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) and will return to the City of South Perth council tonight.

In September 2017, the City received the application to convert a pre-existing house into a centre that would serve 43 children.

Councillors endorsed the application in November under the condition that the centre would only be able to serve a maximum of 30 children and must contain a maximum of three designated staff parking bays.

Applicant Richard Lambe said while he was happy the council had supported and approved the application despite several community complaints, the drop in numbers made the business unviable.

Under orders by the SAT, council will reassess the imposed conditions with officers recommending the number of children on site to be increased to a maximum of 39 and an additional staff car bay be allowed.
