ASBG's Submission on the Child Care Facility SEPP raised concerns on the possible siting of Child Care Facilities (CCF) in industrial zones.  While the SEPP does assist in better controlling CCFs being located even in heavy industrial zones, and considers existing industrial users, it fails to consider future industrial development or future site remediation.  ASBG recommended that CCFs should not be located in IN1 and IN3, General and Heavy industrial zones due to land use conflicts and health impacts on children.  While it may be possible to engineer a CCF to protect it from industrial emissions, the reliability of that protection and the costs would make it a poor choice.  Even then environmental controls currently do not consider such barriers that a CCF could employ leading to a land use conflict.
