A 24-hour service station with a food and drink outlet has been proposed in Childers to cater to Bruce Highway traffic.
The material change of use application, lodged with Bundaberg Regional Council by Brisbane Prestige Property Development Pty Ltd, is over land from 164 to 168 Churchill Street, Childers.
The application seeks approval for a six bay service station, operating 24 hours.
The proposed Churchill Street development provides a service station and a food and drink outlet that will service the Childers community as well as travellers.
“The proposed development is generally commensurate with the community expectations for development within the District centre zone,” the application said
“The proposed development incorporates a playground and park area on the balance of the site.
“The proposed food and drink outlet also provides an outdoor seating area to the frontage of the site which has a positive street front address.
“Landscaping will be able to incorporate three tier planting to maximise amenity and shade and to provide privacy to residents of the adjoining lots.
“The proposed development will provide for pedestrian, bicycle and vehicular movements that maximise connectivity, permeability and ease of movement within and to the centre.”
Access to the proposed Churchill Street service station would be via Churchill and Noakes Street.
The application also makes reference to Bundaberg Regional Council’s Building Bundaberg Region 2020 incentives scheme which, to date, has attracted $40 million worth of development to the region.
If approved, the development will be required to be completed within 12 months to take advantage of the incentives.
