We have undergone a master planning process, proposing a number of improvements to the main campus grounds to meet the current and future needs of the College. The proposed Master Plan is mostly contained within the College’s existing building footprint and involves the utilisation of existing buildings on the subject land. Key projects proposed as part of the Master Plan include:
- internal refurbishment to multi-purpose hall to create performing arts centre for students
- improvements to outdoor sport and recreation facilities including the provision of junior sports oval within eastern side
- new sports hall and change facilities
- outside school hours care facilities
- refurbishment of administration building
- student service centre
- improvements to internal communal spaces
- new classrooms.
The subject land is accessed from College Road to the west of the campus. The proposed Master Plan will formalise an existing approved vehicle access from Valentine Street to improve the overall access arrangements across the subject land. Carparking will continue to be provided across the southern edge of the subject land with increased capacity south of the outside school hours care facilities. A revised carparking supply study will be undertaken as part of the designation process to ensure the peak demands are appropriately catered for as part of the master plan design.
To continue to deliver on our commitment to provide quality education to our community we are requesting that the Minister for State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning identify our campus as an infrastructure designation under the Planning Act 2016. This designation will recognise the College for the following purposes:
- education facilities
- facilities at which an education and care service under the Education and Care Services National Law (Queensland) is operated.
If the MID is approved by the Minister, this designation would acknowledge and reflect what we use the subject land for today.
