Quick­sil­ver puts in Warner St DA

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Quick­sil­ver Group has sub­mit­ted a de­vel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion to the Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil for the land pur­chased in April 2014 at the cor­ner of Grant and Warner St, be­side the cur­rent Quick­sil­ver work­shop and ca­ter­ing fa­cil­ity.

The pur­pose of the ap­pli­ca­tion is to:

For­mally ad­vise Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil of the pro­posed project

Ad­vise Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil of the con­cept, form and pro­posed ar­eas for the de­vel­op­ment

Seek Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil ap­proval to the pro­posal

Com­ment­ing on the de­vel­op­ment ap­pli­ca­tion, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Tony Baker said “We are ex­plor­ing the po­ten­tial de­vel­op­ment of the site for re­lated ma­rine ac­tiv­i­ties. The pro­posed fa­cil­ity will be a new two storey build­ing and will in­clude a pur­pose built dive cen­tre, re­tail out­let and of­fices.”

The de­vel­op­ment will in­clude car park­ing, street works with pedes­trian walk­ways and road up­grades.

Quick­sil­ver says it is con­fi­dent in the growth of tourism to Port Dou­glas and this de­vel­op­ment would en­able Quick­sil­ver to con­tinue its in­vest­ment in its fa­cil­i­ties and ser­vices.

“The prop­erty al­lows us to de­velop our ma­rine ac­tiv­i­ties in Port Dou­glas and still be close to the Ma­rina.”

Dis­cus­sions have been on­go­ing with Coun­cil since May 2016 with the de­sign be­ing re­fined over the past three months.

De­tails of the ap­pli­ca­tion and de­vel­op­ment, in­clu­sive of plans are avail­able to view on the Coun­cil’s web­site.
