A vacant lot on Frizzells Road in Woodgate could soon be transformed into a service station if a recently lodged development application is successful.
The Material Change of Use application for a service station has been lodged with Bundaberg Regional Council and is currently undergoing assessment.
If approved, it was anticipated there would be three staff on-site with the service station proposed to operate from 6 am to 7 pm seven days per week.
The development application said the existing vacant parcel would be developed for a service station and would form part of the established commercial development on the premises.
“The convenience store … would service users of the site and provide a point of purchase for the service station,” the application said.
“Due to the interdependency between the two uses the sites would be amalgamated.
“The site is already connected to all available reticulated services and has an existing commercial context.”
The proposed Woodgate service station, on a site area of 1200 m sq, would feature:
- Two dual bowsers and roofed canopy
- Dedicated landscaping
- Nine formalised carparks in addition to the parking available to the convenience store.
Access would be “left in” only and “right out” allowing all vehicles to access and leave the bowsers in the same direction.
The proposed Woodgate service station would be constructed in a “modern commercial structure finished in corporate colours”.
