A new Bidfood Australia warehouse for food storage and distribution has been approved for development in the Bundaberg Industrial Park.
The Material Change of Use application was lodged over a vacant lot at 38 Charlie Triggs Drive, located just of Kay McDuff Drive.
According to the development application, the Bidfood Australia warehouse would operate 24 hours a day, seven days per week.
“The warehouse has been designed as a two-stage development, featuring a single industrial building comprising a dry store, freezer, chiller, anteroom, plant, and ancillary offices and staff amenities,” the application said.
“The second stage will involve an extension of the dry store, freezer and chiller to the rear.
“No food processing, cooking or preparation will be undertaken on site.”
The application also said the site formed part of the Bundaberg Industrial Park.
“The park was developed by Economic Development Queensland and offers excellent connectivity to Bundaberg’s air and sea ports via the major road network.
“The site will be accessed via two crossovers and ample manoeuvring area is provided for vehicles to access loading docks and parking spaces.
“Landscaping will be provided around the perimeter and incorporate a bio basin for stormwater management purposes.”
The first stage of the proposal involves the construction of a 2396 m sq building while the second stage would see it extended by 1036 m sq, creating a combined building area of about 3432 m sq.
The building is to have a maximum height of 14.1 m and will incorporate 34 carparking spaces in stage one.
