At the November Ordinary Council Meeting, Council approved a ground lease for lots 593-596 (No.6-8) Planet Street, Carlisle to the Department of Education for an initial term of five years.
The Department of Education has a number of schools within the Town of Victoria Park. Due to population growth the Department is considering options to accommodate further student enrolments at Victoria Park Primary School.
To alleviate student accommodation pressures being experienced at the school, Council has approved for 6-8 Planet Street to operate as a temporary Kindergarten.
In the coming months the Department of Education will install two early childhood transportable classrooms on site to educate around 50 kindergarten children per year, starting from the 2018 school year.
A development application for the Kindergarten is due to be lodged by the Education Department with plans for the proposed installation of the transportable classrooms. Adjoining properties will be contacted to discuss the intended plan, to identify and minimise any unforeseen impacts.
