March 2022

Aged-care provider Hall & Prior is progressing the design of a health and aged-care precinct at the one-time Woodside maternity hospital.

The redevelopment of the one hectare site will create approximately 150 aged-care beds, for singles and couples, in a precinct with specialist palliative, dementia, disability and young disability care services.

Hall & Prior is designing a project that will preserve the Woodside House to ensure this State heritage listed building is restored and is thoughtfully integrated into a contemporary aged-care complex and into the wider locality.

Hall and Prior is putting significant emphasis on careful planning of the site in relation to heritage and tree protection/landscaping and other planning requirements in the design process. The design process has also involved a three-stage assessment by the State Design Review Panel.

It is proposed an application will be submitted under the State government Development Assessment Panel (DAP) planning approval system toward the middle of 2022. The application will be advertised formally to the community, and when invited, feedback on the proposal can be directed to the Town.
