Council to discuss sale of Tannum land

GLADSTONE Regional Council will discuss the proposed sale of the Tannum Sands Civic Precinct land at its general meeting on Tuesday.

The council's Innovation, Sustainability and Opportunity Advisory Committee has recommended the sale of the land, which has been the subject of numerous reports in the past.

The most recent report, the Tannum Sands Centre Draft Concept Plan, outlines key elements for the precinct, including offices, medical suites, consultation rooms, an indoor sports and aquatic facility, residential subdivision, new skate park and retirement village.

If the councillors decide to accept the recommendation, they will invite expressions of interest to develop some or all of the land.

The meeting will also discuss the approval of a planned advertising billboard to be built on the northern side of the same block of land.
