New Craiglie servo plan

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

CRAIGLIE might be get­ting a new ser­vice sta­tion, com­plete with a restau­rant or fast food out­let, af­ter land with ex­ist­ing ap­provals was put on the mar­ket this week.

The land on the eastern side of the Cap­tain Cook High­way in Craiglie, only me­tres from the Coles Ser­vice Sta­tion, cur­rently houses Paws and Claws Ken­nels.

Mar­ket­ing agent Greg Wood said there had been a good deal of i nter­est in t he l and, es­pe­cially con­sid­er­ing the pre­ex­ist­ing ap­provals from 2007 to build the ser­vice sta­tion, which will be the fourth in the port Dou­glas area.

‘‘It’s a pretty unique prop­erty so it’s not sur­pris­ing there’s been a good deal of in­ter­est in it,’’ he said.

‘‘Who­ever buys the land can do some­thing else with it, pro­vided it’s within the town plan, but it’s a fairly unique sit­u­a­tion to have some­thing with de­vel­op­ment ap­provals for a petrol sta­tions and fast food out­let, I would be sur­prised if does not end up be­ing that.’’

The pro­posal al­lows for a fast food out­let of about 242sq m with a re­tail fuel out­let of 239sq m and the de­sign con­cept shows six sep­a­rate fuel pumps and am­ple car park­ing space.

Coun­cil­lor Ju­lia Leu said she will be look­ing into the de­tails of the ap­proval for a pos­si­ble fast food out­let.
