Childcare Centre – Wynnum Road, Cannon Hill


A development application has been lodged for a Childcare Centre, located at 918-924 Wynnum Road, Cannon Hill.

Designed by The ELLIS Group Architects, the proposal seeks a large two storey childcare centre over the site, with a maximum building height (approximately 10m high) surrounded by an existing residential area.

The proposal will demolish the significantly damaged dwellings that are no longer habitable structures. The fire occurred prior to the current Applicant purchasing the site and will be removed to facilitate the redevelopment.

The new building will include new acoustic mitigation measures, landscaping screening, and setbacks to avoid any unreasonable adverse impacts.

Development Details
– Demolition of 2 existing dwelling houses and driveways
– GFA 1,008sqm of gross floor area
– 152 place childcare centre, two storeys in height
– 31 car parking spaces (9 Staff) and 1 disabled space on the ground floor
– Pedestrian access is provided from Wynnum Road
– Vehicle Access is via Wynnum Road
– Acoustic fencing
– Ground and elevated outdoor play areas
– Areas of the undercover play area
– 8 activity rooms + muli-purpose room

Hours of Operation
6:00am to 7:00pm (Childcare Centre

The proposed childcare centre includes 31 car parking spaces (one (1) PWD) within an undercroft car park area. All vehicle and pedestrian access are provided to Wynnum Road.

The planners at Urbis state, “The development provides built form parameters established by the Multiple Dwelling Code in particular front, side and rear setbacks, deep planting requirements and maximum building height. Through accommodating built form parameters such as these, the development allows for appropriate access to natural light and breezes to existing and future adjoining developments”.

“The noise impacts from the proposed child care centre are mitigated through appropriate acoustic fencing. Adjoining residential developments have a reduced level of environmental amenity due to their location within the Medium density zone, located on an arterial road and within close proximity to a train line which accommodates freight routes”.

“The childcare centre incorporates large outdoor play areas which will have substantial landscaping along the side and rear boundaries. These areas serve multiple purposes including deep planting, softening the built form appearance and providing natural acoustic attenuation to adjoining developments”.

“The childcare centre incorporates both childcare rooms and the large outdoor play area to be orientated towards the road which provides activation and casual surveillance of the road in a manner which does jeopardise the safety and privacy of the children within”.

The proposal includes 1,008sqm of gross floor area (GFA), with 1,114.40sqm (59.34%) site cover over the 1,878sqm development site.
