TREA­SURER Cur­tis Pitt said he was keen to hear con­cerns be­fore any State Devel­op­ment Area was de­clared.

“In re­la­tion to the Ed­mon­ton Busi­ness and In­dus­try Park, I have met with Alan Sav­ina from Pregno Group to hear his con­cerns. His main point is about price par­ity for in­dus­trial land. I agree,” Mr Pitt said.

“The Co-or­di­na­tor-Gen­eral has iden­ti­fied a short­fall in suit­able ex­ist­ing in­dus­trial land for in­dus­trial devel­op­ment ….

“It’s well known that Cairns’ boom­ing pop­u­la­tion is be­ing driven by growth in the south­ern sub­urbs, in­clud­ing Gor­don­vale, and I have long said this will be the eco­nomic pow­er­house of our city and re­gion.”
