De­vel­op­ers granted ex­ten­sions

Daily Mercury - - NEWS -

A CAR­A­VAN park and a Paget of­fice block will be able to hold on to their coun­cil devel­op­ment con­ces­sions for an ex­tra year, sav­ing thou­sands of dol­lars in charges and fees as project com­ple­tion stretches out longer than ex­pected.

Both the Ad­ven­ture Rid­ers Ranch at Oak­enden, and the Cus­tom Flu­id­power build­ing in Paget were granted ex­ten­sions on their ap­proved con­ces­sions un­der the Fa­cil­i­tat­ing Devel­op­ment in the Mackay Re­gion Pol­icy dur­ing a coun­cil meet­ing on Wed­nes­day.

De­vel­op­ers of the car­a­van park re­quested an ex­ten­sion due to un­planned de­lays re­lat­ing to ap­provals from coun­cil, in­clud­ing for liquor li­cens­ing, food li­cens­ing, car­a­van park li­cens­ing and ap­proval of the devel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion. By ex­tend­ing the con­ces­sions, the coun­cil has al­lowed the car­a­van park’s de­vel­op­ers to save up­wards of $30,000 in charges.

Cus­tom Flu­id­power, a me­chanic busi­ness on Diesel Dr, will save more than $50,000. The com­pany re­quested the ex­ten­sion be­cause the project, which is be­ing built in two stages, had sus­tained dam­age from Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Deb­bie.

The ap­proval was granted on the pro­viso the car­a­van park devel­op­ment will be com­plete by May 11, 2019 and the Paget of­fice build­ing by Fe­bru­ary 2020.
