Men’s Shed going on council land
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.”
