Baptcare is excited at the significant progress made at the former primary school site in Robin Avenue, Norlane (on the corner of Eagle Parade).

When complete, the project will provide:

  • A community hub and café.
  • 52 affordable rental houses.
  • A 120-bed residential aged care facility.

Stage 1 of the development is underway and it won’t be long until local residents see people starting to move into some of the affordable rental houses in Eagle Parade. This will happen around March.

Reference Group

The Baptcare Norlane Project Reference Group has been busy lately. Members of the reference group have been meeting regularly and making important decisions about the site.

Among the top priorities for the group has been choosing street names for the site.

The names chosen by the group are Swift Way, Kite Place and Faith Close.

For more information about the reference group, phone Simon Reeves on 0408-229-981.


Residents can sign up to receive a copy of the project newsletter by emailing [email protected].

The newsletter is an effective way of keeping up-to-date with the project. Updates will also be published in Northerly Aspects.
