Extension granted to Tannum Sands project
By REN LANZONnewsroom@gladstoneobserver.com.au
PROPERTY developers Reward Advantage and Calliope Shire Council have agreed to extend the assessment and development stage for the giant 2000-allotment project at Tannum Sands.
Last week the Council's director of planning Russell Schuler said the group had only one week to request an extension for the masterplanned residential community proposal which was lodged on January 29, 2004.
Mr Schuler said the group applied last Thursday to extend the application to April 29 this year.
Mr Schuler confirmed he expected the Council's planning section to assess the Tannum Waters development application in March 2005.
Stage One of the masterplanned residential community development proposed by Reward Advantage is expected to begin as soon as the group receives Council approval. Mr Schuler said Council consultants Sinclair Knight Merz and Council planning staff would review any additional information provided by the developer to allow the planning report to be prepared and placed before councillors for their decision.
Allotments in the development vary from 800 square metres to 1100 square metres with a minimum 20-metre frontage.
About 2000 allotments would be created in the estimated 10-year completion date but stages could be brought forward if needed.
