Coun­cil ap­proves day care

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Como Burswood -

THE South Perth coun­cil has re­jected con­cerns from Todd Av­enue res­i­dents and ap­proved a fam­ily day care busi­ness to open.

Res­i­dents raised con­cerns that by al­low­ing the house to run a fam­ily day care for four chil­dren, noise and traf­fic in the area would in­crease.

There were also con­cerns that the value of neigh­bour­ing prop­er­ties would de­crease.

Coun­cil­lor Ch­eryle Irons re­jected th­ese con­cerns at the agenda brief­ing, say­ing the house would not have “colour­ful sig­nage” and would look like a nor­mal house.

At the coun­cil meet­ing, Coun­cil­lor Kevin Trent said there was a need for this ser­vice in the com­mu­nity and it would been seen as a ben­e­fit.

City of­fi­cers con­firmed there was an­other fam­ily day care on the street and they had never re­ceived com­plaints re­gard­ing noise, traf­fic or plan­ning.

The fam­ily day care has been ap­proved to cater for up to four chil­dren per day and can op­er­ate Mon­day to Sun­day from 7.30am5.30pm.
