This was an extensive review of existing facilities, buildings, location, access, future capacity and context of early years services to inform new council policies and planning. Horsham North was identified as the first priority for provision of a new integrated early years service in the near future.
A short-term master plan was prepared for kindergarten, childcare and maternal and child health facilities, administration and multi-purpose community spaces. Outdoor recreation spaces were important given the centre’s location on a recreation park. Council has presented the reports and drawings to the Horsham community for comment.
