Daycare planned for Launceston Health Hub

A child care centre could soon be added to the Launceston Health Hub. 

In a development application, lodged with the City of Launceston council, Encompass Health Holdings propose to extend the second level of the site.

The centre would have a maximum capacity of 120 children and 24 staff. 

Opening hours would be 6.30am until 10pm to coincide with hospital shifts. 

A proposed outdoor play area would sit slightly above Ockerby Gardens.

Twenty car spaces would be made available for parents. 

“The child care operator, Discovery Learning Centres, has been looking at this site for a long period and had the chance to review parking demand over a period of 18 months,” the development application said.

The application is open for comment until Wednesday, July 18.
