40 children and 5 full time staff members
Non-notified / Approved
Waipa Christian School sought consent in 2013 to establish a childcare centre “Waipa Creators Christian Kindergarten” that once complete would provide for 40 children and 5 staff members on the site at 320 Swarbrick Drive, Te Awamutu.
The centre which is now constructed comprises a single level building that has been designed to cater for the various needs of children based upon their age in accordance with ECE requirements and regulations. Landscaping, access paths, and outdoor play areas make up the remainder of area designated for childcare use.
The childcare centre caters for children aged 2 to 5 years and offers sessional and full day care Monday to Friday from 8:45am to 2:45pm.
Ten existing car parking spaces are provided on the site to the south-west of the childcare building inclusive of one accessible space. These existing spaces have access from Chapel Drive and are utilised by parents / guardians for drop-off and collection purposes. Five existing car parking spaces are provided on site to the north-west of the centre. These spaces are used by the centres’ staff and have access from Chapel Drive. A pedestrian path leads from the childcare drop-off and collection spaces mentioned above to the centre.
Siteworks were required to establish level building platforms, form access, and for the installation of services. Landscaping was provided post-construction to enhance the amenity of the childcare centre and the site.
Overall, the approved application required consent as a non-complying activity under the Waipa District Council District Plan.
