Mapping error finally set right
A MAPPING error to beachfront at Springs Beach, Agnes Water, has been corrected by Gladstone Regional Council.
Council amended the Miriam Vale Shire Planning Scheme at Tuesday’s meeting to correct the error.
Strategic Planning director Russell Schuler said the land, under the current planning scheme, has two different zonings – conservation and special residential.
The land is subject to development application approval for 16 residential lots.
The land lies between Springs Beach and the northern section of the development known as Sunrise @ 1770 and presently contains one approved dwelling and one unapproved dwelling. Both buildings are within the erosion-prone area but were proposed to be incorporated in new lots.
The error has been an issue since 2006 with the planning scheme conflicting with a Reconfiguration of Lot approval given by the then Environment Protection Agency.
