CORAL COVE DEVELOPMENT GETS PRELIMINARY APPROVAL

Key infrastructure is set to be delivered to Coral Cove after a major development application was given preliminary approval by Bundaberg Regional Council.

At its ordinary meeting this week (October 15) Council granted the development preliminary approval, with conditions, for a material change of use.

Council’s Planning and Development portfolio spokesperson Cr Ross Sommerfeld said the development, which could provide up to 779 residential allotments, would have positive outcomes for existing residents.

“This development has been on the books for a long time, originally having been lodged with Burnett Shire Council,” Cr Sommerfeld said.

“A recent change in State Government legislation has removed road blocks which were preventing this development from moving forward.”

In the application he said the developer had committed to providing significant areas of open space, parkland and pathways as well a redevelopment of the foreshore area.

“Council feels there is an overriding community benefit in supporting this development.”

He said as part of the infrastructure agreement, which was also approved during the Ordinary Meeting, a reticulated sewerage system would be delivered.

“We will actually be able to shut down the existing plant, which is operating at capacity, and connect Coral Cove to a regional network which will assist those who currently rely on septic systems and provide a more efficient service to the coastal residents who already have sewerage.”

Divisional representative Cr Greg Barnes said the foreshore area had long been lacking facilities such as shelter sheds and barbecues.

“This development would bring with it foreshore facilities which residents have been screaming out for,” Cr Barnes said.
