Recommendation

 

THAT Council permit the Cudal Community Children’s Centre to temporarily relocate to 36 Main Street, Cudal subject to them obtaining the appropriate licences prior to occupation and carrying out the required building works.

 

General Manager's REPORT

 

The Cudal Community Children’s Centre (the Centre) has approached Council seeking permission to temporarily relocate to the old doctor’s residence (36 Main Street) in Cudal, while the existing centre undergoes renovation and extension. The residence was purchased by the then Boree Shire Council to house the local doctor and is managed by a s355 committee. Cudal no longer has a resident doctor and for a number of years the building has been leased out by the committee as a normal residential premise and is currently unoccupied.

 

An inspection of the building has been conducted by Council’s Acting Community Services Manager and Risk Management Coordinator to assess its suitability as a temporary preschool. The premises are yet to be inspected by the Department of Education (the Department) who may or may not have a higher level of requirements than those identified by Council staff prior to a temporary licence being issued.

 

The inspection by Council staff revealed a number of concerns including lack of appropriate fencing, electrical wiring, location of power outlets and slip hazards. These areas would need to be addressed by the s355 committee (or the Centre on the committee’s behalf) prior to occupation as well as any requirements by the Department in relation to licencing of the premises as a temporary preschool.
