Traffic Concern Over New Mt Barker Childcare Centre


Neighbours adjacent to a proposed new childcare centre in Mt Barker are concerned it will create issues with already congested traffic on busy Adelaide Road.

Accord property will convert a heritage listed home on the road into a childcare centre with neighbours wondering why they can’t create an entry at the rear of the property on Chapman Crescent as cars will only be able to turn left into the driveway and then left out of it.

Council ruled out the rear exit as it would threaten historical trees and create a major increase in traffic on a residential street.

The development has been approved by council.
