A CHILDCARE centre catering for more than 70 children is proposed for Balcatta.

Stirling’s Vinci Constructions and Developments is seeking to build the centre at the corner of Amelia and Cedric streets.

It will replace a vacant corner lot and neighbouring existing house on Amelia Street.

The centre will cater for a maximum of 72 children at any time, with 13 staff and operate 6.30am to 6.30pm weekdays.

Plans show two outdoor play areas and 20 parking bays.

City of Stirling is seeking feedback on the proposal until May 29.

Public consultation is also open for a childcare centre on Beaufort Street in Mt Lawley, near the corner of Fifth Avenue.

The site was previously home to a building business and would require a change of use from showroom.

The centre is proposed to operate from 7am to 6.30pm weekdays and accommodate 42 children and four staff, with nine parking bays provided on Wenberi Lane.

The proponent said it gave an opportunity to “create a unique Mt Lawley-style street facade” to “improve and beautify” the area.

They also promised high quality finishes and a two-storey “living wall” of plants along the northern boundary.
