Men’s Shed go­ing on coun­cil land

Isis Town and Country - - News -

RES­I­DENTS are con­cerned a devel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion lodged by Childers Men’s Shed for a North St site could im­pact on the stan­dard of agri­cul­tural ed­u­ca­tion de­liv­ery.

Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil for­malised a lease agree­ment with the Childers Dis­trict Men’s Shed As­so­ci­a­tion over the prop­erty with the lease in place for a 10-year pe­riod.

“As part of that DA process there is a public no­ti­fi­ca­tion pe­riod in­volved which also in­cludes no­ti­fi­ca­tion to ad­join­ing land­hold­ers,” Cr Tony Ricciardi said.

The no­ti­fi­ca­tion pe­riod will run from May 7 to May 29.

“The lease area has been used by the Isis High School as a part of its agri­cul­tural science pro­gram with in­for­mal agree­ment given, I be­lieve, by the for­mer Isis Shire Coun­cil for the school to use un­til it was re­quired for com­mu­nity use,” Cr Ricciardi said.

“The prop­erty is free­hold land owned by coun­cil and the pro­posed use by the Childers Men’s Shed group is an ap­pro­pri­ate use of the land.”
