The proposed development also includes 692m2 of other retail and food related floor space with four individual retail units.

The 1400m2 childcare centre will include 700m2 of outdoor space and is expected to cater for

90 children and 15 staff.

About 700 carparking spaces are planned in total.

“The proposed development will provide a distinctive addition to the Yamanto locality,

contributing positively to the surrounding area and enhancing this key retail and services hub.

“The design is sensitive to the surrounding area and responsive to the prominent site location,

delivering a ‘gateway’ feature to create a suitable statement for the Warwick Road approach

and interface.”

The site is located directly opposite the Yamanto major centre with the land on the southern

site of Warwick Rd included in the major centres zone.
