Louise Asher announces redevelopment plans

On Wednesday 27 August The Hon Louise Asher MP attended Bayley House to announce plans for a $2.2 million major redevelopment of its Day Service facilities at 52 Middle Crescent. Ms Asher reviewed the plans and toured the centre with representatives of the Board, Senior Management, Bayside City Council and Hede Architects.

The buildings at the Bayley House day centre are over 45 years old and have not been renovated since the late 1970s. 

The redevelopment received a green light to proceed when the Bayside City Council made a decision last year to grant a 15 year lease on the land at the rear of the property on which many of the buildings stand. 

The first stage of the redevelopment at Bayley House will update facilities on the upper floor will take several weeks to complete and result in new program spaces. The second stage commences in January 2015 and will take six months to complete. It will create a purpose built space to meet requirements of individuals with high support needs. The final phase will generate a new art space and upgraded toilet facilities in the main building. 

The announcement was made in the presence of staff and Board members, key supporters and donors and government officials.
