Setting the foundation—Proposed Ministerial designation of premises for development of infrastructure under the Planning Act 2016

St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School has requested that the Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning designate our premises at 11 Petrie Street, Ascot, Queensland for:

  • educational facilities
  • facilities at which an education and care service under the Education and Care Services National Law (Queensland) is operated.

    This Proposed Infrastructure Designation has been requested in accordance with Chapter 2, Part 5 of the Planning Act 2016.

    The proposed Infrastructure Designation applies to the land owned by the Sacred Advent Schools Pty Ltd (the owner of the assets and operations of the school) and bounded by:

  • Lapraik Street
  • Comus Avenue
  • Petrie Street and Butler Street
  • Towers Street and Butler Street.

The land can be seen in the following aerial photograph.

The school’s education facilities in Ascot are intended to be used to:

·         educate students from Pre-Prep to Year 12

·         provide before and after school care

·         provide care for children under 4 years of age

·         provide accommodation for persons associated with the school.

If the Infrastructure Designation is approved, the school’s premises at 11 Petrie Street, Ascot will be identified as being available for education facilities and facilities at which an education and care service under the Education and Care Services National Law (Queensland) is operated. This designation would acknowledge and reflect what the school uses this land for today.

Rejuvenating our facilities—Sports Precinct

As part of our ongoing master planning for the school, we have identified opportunities to rejuvenate and redevelop parts of our school to help us function more efficiently. The first stage of this rejuvenation, and the primary focus of the proposed Infrastructure Designation, is the development of a Sports Precinct, located within the northern portion of the land.

The delivery of the Sports Precinct is a priority for the school, as our existing pool is 45 years old and is reaching the end of its ‘life’. This has presented an opportunity to relocate the pool and create a Sports Precinct that provides more modern facilities to cater for the sporting pursuits of our students.
