Almost 200 new residential lots have been approved on Telegraph Road in Kalkie.
The reconfiguring a lot and variation request application proposes to turn one lot into 199 lots, including a drainage corridor, sewerage pump station and two balance lots.
The Kalkie subdivision includes 194 residential lots ranging in size from 608m2 to 1137m2.
The application, submitted by Emtom Pty Ltd and Indy Investment Pty Ltd, outlines plans for the residential subdivision to be undertaken in six stages.
“The anticipated release program would ultimately depend upon a number of variables such as demand,” the application said.
“The proposal when ultimately realised will deliver residential development that is consistent with the scale of the surrounding area and will assist in meeting the likely need for low density residential development created by projected growth in the region.”
The Kalkie subdivision application also outlined that the developer believed it was a “logical” extension of the existing use of the locality.
“The subdivision will be sequentially provided with infrastructure that will be efficient, fit-for-purpose and connected to existing services,” the application said.
The Kalkie subdivision is l0.88 hectares at 134 Telegraph Road, about 3km east of the Burnett River and Bundaberg CBD.
Bundaberg Regional Council has approved the development in full with conditions.
