Council knocks back plan for motorhome park at Calliope

A PROPOSAL to build a motorhome village on Racecourse Rd in Calliope has been rejected by Gladstone Regional Council at its general meeting, following community opposition.

The council had last year approved construction of a 140-site caravan park at the 24-hectare location.

The applicants had recently sought council's permission to instead accommodate 92 relocatable homes.

Councillors rejected the application on the grounds that the proposed amendment was substantially different to the development already approved, and introduced new impacts.

A petition with 138 signatures was received in the public submissions process.
