Council approves 344-home lifestyle resort
A 344-home over 50s lifestyle resort at Innes Park has been approved by Bundaberg Regional Council.
Coined Bargara Waters Lifestyle Resort, developer AEP Developments promises “luxurious facilities and Hamptons-inspired architecture”.
Council's planning and development portfolio spokesman Cr Ross Sommerfeld said the lifestyle resort would be situated on Logan Road.
“The development will be constructed over five stages, beginning with the entrance, part of the communal facilities and 41 home sites,” Cr Sommerfeld said.
“The applicant has estimated it could take until 2028 to have all five stages finalised.”
He said the lifestyle resort would offer two-bedroom homes with design options to cater for caravans and RVs.
Communal facilities available to residents of Bargara Waters will include a lounge, bar, café, function area, cinema, games room, lap pool, gym and a putting green.
Cr Sommerfeld said the development was another sign of rising confidence in the Bundaberg Region.
“Our coastal strip is certainly experiencing a high level of growth as more and more people look to secure their little slice of paradise,” he said.
“A development of this scale is well situated in the Innes Park area and will cater to this growing demand.”
AEP Developments expects the first stage to be released in mid-2019.
Company Director Andre Hayek said he was thrilled to deliver the “once in a lifetime” opportunity to live on the Bundaberg Region's picturesque coastline while also creating 1.5 hectares of oceanfront public parkland.
“Council has been fantastic to work with throughout the whole process and we are looking forward to bringing something very special to the region,” Mr Hayek said.
“Bargara Waters is not a retirement village.
“Our aim is to provide a world-class resort that promotes a safe, social and active lifestyle for our residents, so that they feel like they are on holiday every day of the year.”

What on earth are we going to do with all these retirement homes once they aren’t being used? We have ten of these villages in the Wide Bay now, it would be nice to know what future-proofing we have in place.
