Fraser Coast councillors have their say on high-rise development at Urangan in Hervey Bay

TWO councillors have voiced their opposition to building high-rises in Hervey Bay, while others want to wait to consider the development application and how it fits into the town planning scheme before voicing any opinions.

Fraser Coast Deputy Mayor George Seymour said he was against the plans for a 20-storey twin tower development in Urangan, which he described as a massive increase in density and not how the community wanted Hervey Bay to develop.

Division 1 councillor James Hansen agreed, saying it would change the character of Hervey Bay forever and for the worse, in his opinion.

Councillor Denis Chapman voiced his support for the project, saying it was crucial for the region to continue building infrastructure, which would lead to population growth and jobs.

“I think it’s great for our region,” he said.

“It’s the way of the future.”

He said in order to hold on to green space in the area, it was necessary to consider options like high rises, which would allow for housing while minimising the region’s urban footprint.

Councillor David Lewis said he was not generally in favour of 20-storey development in Hervey Bay, but as the previous council had amended the planning scheme to allow such developments, there may be little the council could do to refuse the application.

“It is entitled to be assessed on its merits in accordance with the scheme,” he said.

Mr Lewis said he felt a 20- storey development would significantly and irrevocably alter the character of the city and its shoreline.

“Previous councils had a policy of trying to limit buildings to no higher than the tree line,” he said.

“In part this took into account the view from the beaches and the sea.

“I think that was a good policy.”

Councillor Paul Truscott said the planning scheme specifically supported this type of development.

“I will consider the development on its merits when it is presented to full council,” he said.

Councillor Darren Everard said he also needed time to consider the application before voicing an opinion, while councillor Rolf Light said it would be inappropriate to make a comment before considering all the facts and whether the development met the criteria in the current town planning scheme.

Councillors Anne Maddern, Daniel Sanderson, Stuart Taylor and Mayor Chris Loft were contacted, but had not responded at the time of going to print.

Editors Note

**This is a great opportunity for us Fraser Coast residents to join the real world & get jobs & prosperity for the region.Not only in construction but thereafter with servicing the development & its occupants.We have many kilometres of beach shoreline in the Fraser Coast Region and just a tiny portion of that allocated for such a development is a pittance of a price to pay for the good it will do & bring to the community. Most of us are getting tired of this region being branded as one of the most unemployed regions in the nation.

The quicker this and similar developments take shape the better but in a controlled and well planned manner.

FRASER COAST TRADES & SERVICES CENTRE & THE MINING INDUSTRY @ HOWARD

Mining boom boosts Howard

Fraser Coast Chronicle

A RESURGENT mining boom on the Fraser Coast may be in its infancy but that is not stopping Henry Sapiecha from plotting a Burrum revolution.

Howard is close to Henry’s heart and as the publicity officer of the Burrum and District Chamber of Commerce, he believes that striking before the coal is out of the ground – let alone hot – is paramount for the little town.

“I’m working out a way to reinvent Howard,” Mr Sapiecha said.

“This is an area that should be going ahead. This is the start of a new beginning.

“This can be an important location for the industry during the upcoming decade.”

The Burrum chamber’s economic advisory committee hosted a meeting last week where a Mackay-based mining expert presented an idea of what would be required if mining corporations Santos and Northern Energy get the go-ahead in this region.

“He was talking about thousands of jobs,” Mr Sapiecha said.

“He is into training people for the mines so as not to suck the talent out of the community.

“He spoke about feeling out the community, getting the mining people what they want without disrupting the local community.

“This is about getting apprentices trained and knowing about the mining industry.”

Mr Sapiecha is determined for his town to reap the benefits and is proposing to develop a parcel of land near the Howard railway line into a custom-built trade centre.

His company, Wide Bay District Developments, and Semfield, owned by John Turnbull, own the adjoining sites.

“All areas of the Fraser Coast will benefit. All areas will get work and will interact with the industry in some way.

“But I’m biased; I want this area to be its base.

“This industry will need to be serviced and supported.”

He has set up Fraser Coast Trades and Service Centre at Howard which – aligned with nearby rail and highway infrastructure – can make Howard the hub of a mining boom.

“I want this area to interact with them as quickly as possible.

“They will still utilise services in the whole region but will need a more immediate back-up to service their requirements.

“We want to make it harder for these people not to use this place as a centre.”

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

We would like to thank Steve and the Chronicle for giving us the coverage for the project and for the area generally especially in the light of the existing mining interests and the positive impact it would have on our local economy.

Hopefully more of the same in the near future.
