A 199 lot Kalkie subdivision has been approved on Telegraph Road

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.



  1. It just isn’t going to stop is it, another 400 more cars on an already too busy Walker Street or Bargara Road? Suppose the bush is being flattened then and no more dog walking up there with the kangaroos. Why is this place been turned in to something like a Brisbane suburb? The traffic is getting insanely busy as it is.

  2. Would it be possible to have double-storey units in there to accommodate low income renters and a few blocks for the older people who are now homeless? Just a thought.

  3. We do need the extra houses & 2 or 3 bedroom appartments for rentals. It’s ether more land or denser buildings in the high density area. Bundaberg has plenty of houses forsale but rentals is hardly any. Would be better near Thabeban, Kepnock or Avoca away from the flood plane.

    We also need to prompt people off Walker Street & Bargara Road. A reminder that we did build a ring road. There’s also Enterprise street, Johanna BLVD, Boreham street, Maynard Street, Thabeban street, Telegraph road, Princess street, the bywash, George street, Que Hue Street & Theodore Street that can be used to stay off those streets while getting past either the train track, Burnett River or Saltwater Creek.

    Most of these streets have much less traffic & will save you time with less traffic lights.
