Leyton Property, a real estate developer based in Adelaide City, has lodged a development application for a single-storey childcare centre on 1105 Wesley Road, Griffin to accommodate the growing demand for childcare in the area.

A report prepared by Urbis on behalf of the applicant states that the proposed development of the facility will help ease the stress on the child care system in the Griffin region.



“Although there are several existing and proposed child care centres in the area, the experienced operator is confident that the location and particular demands of the market are amenable to accommodate the proposal,” the application said. 

Presently, there are three childcare centres operating within the area offering a total of 226 places. There are four other centres that have received the approval, with two of them opening in 2020 and the others opening in 2022 and 2025.

The subject site is located in a residential subdivision and nearby newly establishing residential uses and the Griffin State School, which only opened in 2016. 

The site and its adjoining sites were previously used for agricultural, rural residential purposes and a plant nursery before being cleared for the purpose of a residential estate.
