Final plans for hospital site

With demolition of Kiama Hospital underway, and a decision on the construction tender expected to be made in July, Kiama Council has lodged final modifications to its approved plans for the Kiama Aged Care Centre of Excellence.

Council says the key changes are: replacing the proposed 16 one bedroom assisted living units with eight two bedroom independent living units and providing the necessary parking; increasing parking at the rear of the site; and changes to the layout of the community hall and deck.

General Manager Michael Forsyth said the amended design would deliver a reduced building footprint without affecting the quality and range of facilities for future residents.

“The result is we not only have a functional and attractive complex that residents will enjoy living in, but it is overall a smaller design.”

The designs are currently on display, with submissions closing 10 May.

Stage I of the development is expected to be completed by mid-2019.
