College moves to new cam­pus

- Kristie Lim Perth · Maylands · Bayswater

IN­TER­NA­TIONAL ed­u­ca­tion provider iCol­lege will be mov­ing its Perth cam­pus from May­lands to a for­mer tool shop in Bayswa­ter.

The provider runs var­i­ous pro­grams for lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional stu­dents, in­clud­ing hos­pi­tal­ity and com­mer­cial cook­ery.

It is cur­rently based at The Rise but will be mov­ing to the va­cant Power Tools and Machin­ery Sales shop on Beech­boro Road South.

Bayswa­ter Coun­cil ap­proved iCol­lege’s change of use ap­pli­ca­tion for an ed­u­ca­tional es­tab­lish­ment at its De­cem­ber 3 meet­ing, de­spite a car park­ing short­fall of about 76 bays.

The to­tal num­ber of bays re­quired was 98 bays, but coun­cil­lors were con­vinced that the stu­dents would mainly use pub­lic trans­port in­stead of driv­ing.

The site will cater for a max­i­mum of 390 stu­dents and 10 staff, with a limit of 120 stu­dents on site at any one time.

Coun­cil­lor Michelle Suther­land said it was good to see an ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tion in Bayswa­ter.

Cr Suther­land said she did not think trans­port would be an is­sue as most peo­ple would catch the train or buses.

Cr Sally Palmer said it was a smart de­vel­op­ment in a smart lo­ca­tion.

iCol­lege was con­tacted for com­ment.
