The coun­cil, at its or­di­nary meet­ing, ap­proved the use of ar­eas of the park at Kendall Flat for use by Bund­aberg Vintage Ve­hi­cle Club, Bur­nett Model Trains So­cial Club Inc and Gin Gin Queens­land On Road Ra­dio Con­trol Rac­ing Car Club Inc.

Cr Lynne Forgan said the three clubs had pro­vided ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est to utilise fa­cil­i­ties at the for­mer net­ball courts af­ter the fa­cil­ity was handed back to the coun­cil by Bund­aberg Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion.

She said two groups would share the main club­house and kiosk, with the Bur­nett Model Trains So­cial Club Inc ex­press­ing in­ter­est in the use of the tower build­ing and stor­age shed.

“The clubs will gain their use of the fa­cil­ity through a for­malised Per­mit to Oc­cupy which will clearly set out the terms and costs

as­so­ci­ated with the on­go­ing use,” Cr Forgan said.

Cr Forgan said hire rev­enue to be paid by the three groups would amount to at least $1554 per year.

“This is a pos­i­tive out­come for this fa­cil­ity which was va­cated by net­ball due to the prob­lems as­so­ci­ated with on­go­ing flood­ing,” she said.

“While these three groups will have their des­ig­nated use of the park, the fa­cil­ity is still avail­able for hire by any com­mu­nity group at times not con­flict­ing with the ap­proved users.”

Cr Forgan said the park was di­vided into six zones, with zones cov­er­ing the club­house and kiosk, tower build­ing, stor­age sheds, bi­tu­men open area and a grassed open area.

Toi­let fa­cil­i­ties will be avail­able to all users at no charge.
