The strip of shops on the corner of Day Street and Carpenter Street in Colyton could be set for a major makeover if plans costing over $8.5 million are given the green light.

A Development Application (DA) for 30 Day Street, Colyton, which is a neighbourhood retail centre, seeks to demolish the existing structures that sit on the 1,943 square metre site.

If approved, a two-storey building will then be constructed that will have nine separate tenancies on the ground floor and a childcare centre for 90 children at the first-floor level.

Two levels of parking will be built in the basement of the structure to provide 72 car spaces and 12 bicycle spaces.

The Statement of Environmental Effects (SEE) said the childcare, which will operate from 7am to 6pm on Monday to Friday, will include an outdoor play area bound by a 1.8-metre-high glass balustrade with aluminium battens.

“It also includes a foyer, lift well, cot rooms, toilet and nappy change spaces, kitchen, laundry, meeting, office and staff rooms,” the SEE said.

“Outdoor areas and spaces include a 633.5 square metre outdoor learning space, covered verandah area, large sandpit with shade cloth cover, playground and picnic area.”

The development will include toilets on ground level and proposes an awning over the entire length of the site frontage and bench seating along the footpath.

The DA will be on public exhibition from Monday, January 23 to Monday, February 6.
