An application to turn two residential blocks at Goodna into a child care centre has been lodged with Ipswich City Council.
It is for land at 15 Albert Street and 41 Smiths Road.
The applicant proposes to demolish existing houses and sheds on the site and replace them with a single-storey 890 square metre child care centre.
It would cater for up to 96 enrolments and 18 staff.
The centre would have an internal gross floor area of 700 square metres with 189 square metres of covered verandah areas.
It would have six separate activity areas and two children’s sleeping areas.
Outside, the applicant proposes three play areas totalling about 770 square metres in size.
Consideration has been given in the application to potential noise impact on neighbouring properties with a 2.4m high acoustic barrier fence proposed along the site’s northern boundary and a 1.8m high acoustic barrier proposed along the western property boundary.

None of the proposed outdoor play areas would be located directly adjacent to a habitable room of an adjoining dwelling.
Properties nearby to the site include houses, home businesses and existing child care centres.
Access to the centre is proposed to be via Albert Street, with 30 car park spaces planned for the site.
The application is yet to be considered by council.
