Did you know that Hendra could soon be getting a new childcare centre and sport & recreation facility with a basketball court and handball court?

Lethem Street Projects has submitted a development application to establish a 239-place childcare centre at 25 Lethem Street, the former home of the Hendra Lawn Bowls Club.

With a height of 8.7 metres, the two-storey building is designed to be of a house-sensitive scale that easily integrates with the surrounding uses. 




Designed by Mijollo International, the proposed development includes a provision for a 2,254-sqm private outdoor sport and recreation facility which will contain a 556-sqm basketball and handball court.

The courts will be available for hire outside the main hours of operation of the childcare centre.
