Luxury rambles into Hervey Bay: work starts on $140m RV lifestyle Fraser Coast Qld

A LUXURY $140 million RV resort is officially under way in Hervey Bay.

The first sod will be turned on Wednesday at the site of Latitude25, a gated community specifically designed for RV and lifestyle enthusiasts.

The development, at Spring Way, Nikenbah, spans 20 hectares and will eventually be home to about 530 people in up to 281 homes.

It encompasses two lakes, green open space, parks, picnic areas and a $5 million state-of-the-art clubhouse and leisure centre.

Each home will have its own purpose-built garage to house its owner’s toys, whether they be an RV, cars or boat.

There will be a mail collection and forwarding service for when residents are on the road, although the full-size tennis courts, bowling green, golf chipping and putting green, billiard room, arts and crafts and games rooms, gym, pool, catering kitchen and bar may make even the keenest grey nomad stay home more.

Latitude25 will attract wealthy RVers to make their home on the Fraser Coast.

Director Mick Irwin said Latitude25 would be unlike any other lifestyle community before.

“I’m a local and also an RVer myself, so I’ve seen the need for this style of community for quite some time,” he said.

The clubhouse and leisure centre are due for completion early next year, with the first 15 homes also due to be finished in early 2018.

Home packages will start from $450,000 to $550,000.

HERVEY BAY FRASER COAST GETS THE NOD FROM COUNCIL FOR AN ESPLANADE $60M DEVELOPMENT

A PRELIMINARY development approval for the $60 million Scarness resort complex was carried unanimously at Wednesday’s Fraser Coast Regional Council meeting.

The proposal for the resort complex, which includes more than 100 residential units, a shopping complex and office complexes, means the developers will start their assessment of the site and consult with council before construction.

A new roundabout for the local streets in Scarness was also mentioned in the development plans.

Councillor David Lewis raised concerns over the traffic in the area, claiming the development would create problems for the Esplanade streets.

“The proposed roundabout will pose problems for the Queens Rd Esplanade intersection, which is already problematic especially in busy times,” he said.

“In busy times, it (the traffic) can back up a long way along the Esplandade.”

Cr Denis Chapman said it was about trying to use the commercial land as best as possible.

“It’s just a preliminary approval…they’ve got to come back to us and approve it. When you’ve got commercial land, you try and use as much of it as possible,” he said.

A date has not yet been set for the development, but Cr Chapman previously said he hoped to see development start by the end of the year
