Summary of Thursday 13 April 2023 Planning Committee Meeting

Reconfiguring A Lot — Kaban Wind Farm Pty Ltd

Approval was given for a reconfiguration of a lot development permit for Lot 35 on Holland Road, Tumoulin, subject to conditions. The permit is required for the establishment of a lease exceeding 10 years. The lease is to secure tenure over part of the lot for the Kaban Wind Farm.

Southern Link Road

The timing of the construction of the Southern Link Road (Weaver Street), Atherton will be reviewed in conjunction with future Planning Schemes, long-term financial plan, operational and capital budgets, and Local Government Infrastructure Plan. The Weaver Street road reserve will be retained to ensure the future development of the Southern Link Road. The intent of the Southern Link Road is to reduce pressure on Robert Street; provide connectivity between the Kennedy Highway, Herberton Road and Hastie Road; and ultimately service the demand for additional residential land in the area.

Freehold Lots Priors Creek Development
