A residential care facility comprising six specialist disability accommodation units has been approved for development in Bundaberg West.
Bundaberg Regional Council recently received the Material Change of Use application from Palms Homes Pty Ltd for the development, located at 30 Adams Street.
The application states the facility will be separated into three single-storey buildings and feature a range of common areas.
“The proposed units have been specially designed for people with functional impairment or high support needs and require the care of support workers,” the application says.
“Each unit includes one bedroom, kitchen, living area, office area, private open patio, garden, and a separate bathroom for the use of the support/care workers.
“Units 3 to 6 will share a common laundry with the assistance from their support worker.”
Along with the units, the residential care facility will also include a range of communal areas including a covered entertainment area and hydrotherapy pool.
“The proposal also provides for an ancillary office which is located between Unit 1 and Unit 2 within Building A,” the application reads.
“The office will provide for administrative and storage functions for the support/care workers.”
The development, at 30 Adams Street, sits on 2023 square metres of land and is located in close proximity to Walker Street and TAFE Bundaberg.
