THERE could soon be a new place on the Fraser Coast for cat lovers to book in their fe­line friends.

A devel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion for a cat re­treat in Ti­nana South, which could house about 60 cats, has been sub­mit­ted for re­view to the Fraser Coast Re­gional Coun­cil.

Plan­ning doc­u­ments re­veal the pro­posed re­treat would take up about 135.6sqm and have two sep­a­rate ac­com­mo­da­tion ar­eas hous­ing about 22 cages each.

The re­treat would be lo­cated on the cor­ner of Ner­ada Rd and Five Mile Rd East at the back of the res­i­den­tial prop­erty.

“It is ex­pected that clien­tele will range from fam­i­lies, cou­ples and re­tirees who value a safe and se­cure place for their cats to stay when needed,” the doc­u­ments read.

“Re­search sug­gests that the fa­cil­ity could be use­ful for the needs of trav­el­ling RV clien­tele who make Queens­land a much-de­sired win­ter des­ti­na­tion.

“The “ac­com­mo­da­tion com­plex” aims to pro­vide a range of ac­com­mo­da­tion for peo­ple’s fam­ily pets. Re­search has shown that there is an open­ing for an up­mar­ket pro­fes­sional ser­vice in the area.”

Both ac­com­mo­da­tion ar­eas would be air-con­di­tioned and the build­ing would be in­su­lated and lined to make the re­treat us­able all year round.

The project out­lines three lev­els of ac­com­mo­da­tion for the cats, which range from “in­di­vid­u­ally-themed spa­ces, with climb­ing tow­ers, toys, com­fort­able bed­ding, ham­mocks, al­lo­cated pet­ting times and piped mu­sic” in pre­mium choices to “smaller cages... with com­fort­able bed­ding” for bud­get choices.

A fur­ther de­ci­sion on the project is yet to be made.
