Subdivision brings new lodging
ACCOMMODATION has been created for council staff and councillors as part of a subdivision project being carried out by Banana Shire Council.
Councillor Vaughn Becker took the opportunity on Tuesday night to check out the accommodation facilities, next to the former Biloela State Pre-School.
The council yesterday passed a recommendation to approve a design contract to McMurties Engineering for seven lots on a block of land in Auburn Street, Biloela.
The site was previously owned by the State Government and was used for community purposes.
A development application for a Material Change of Use to establish residential use has been lodged.
Council's Commercial Services director Andrew Reid said there would be a new cul-de-sac created as part of the subdivision development.
The council also moved yesterday to give chief executive officer Ray Geraghty authorisation to proceed to engage an agent to sell blocks by auction.
Part of the development, lots one to three, will be retained for council's own needs.
The biggest risk will be council spends the money on developing the land and then not be able to sell the lots in an acceptable timeframe.
