Moore Park Beach winery
A development permit has been submitted for a Material Change of Use to establish a winery to process an existing grape crop at 32 Heron Close.

A winery and associated distillery has been proposed for development in Moore Park Beach, with tours and tastings part of future plans for the site.

Bundaberg Regional Council recently received the development permit for a Material Change of Use to establish a winery to process an existing grape crop at 32 Heron Close.

“Once established, a distillery producing less than 2,500L per annum is proposed to reuse waste by-product produced in the wine making process to create brandy,” the application states.

“Upon review of its operation, it is intended that this volume may be increased on an as needs basis.

The application states it is anticipated that ancillary tourism and retail uses would be associated with the proposed material change of use.

“This would be in the form of winery and distillery tours, tastings and wholesale retailing of the produced wine and brandy,” the proposal reads.

“The nature of tours and tastings would mean that visitor numbers would be grouped together for a limited number of tours per day.

“The existing facilities on site including a parking area, which are currently associated with the horse trail riding business would be shared and sufficiently accommodates the anticipated needs of the proposed development.”

  1. Small communities become divided over issues like this.
    Not everyone in those communities is either mature or well balanced.

    Why, on your own council funded website which you chose to deliver the news of an application for a commercial listing and subsequent license for a virgin plot of land on untouched beach scrub merging into pristine mangrove meters off THE GREAT BARRIER REEF when there is a perfectly good commercial district in More Park with acres and acres of perfectly suitable commercial land already available in More Park would you insist on respondents leaving their full names and email addresses in order to offer community feedback?

    I suspect I know why.

    Once this block of land becomes commercial, it’s commercial which further makes it easier for neighboring land to subsequently be classed as commercial.
    And what happens in ten or fifteen years when they sell or go broke or whatever?
    Who buys it and what do they develop on this now commercial lot?

    Why don’t they build their distillery opposite the shops on Murdoch’s, Road?
    It’s perfect for the desired purpose and that’s the commercial hub.
    A distillery would be great there.
    It’s also not virgin mangrove ON A TURTLE ROOKERY DIRECTLY ON THE GREAT BARRIER REEF.
    ffs.

  2. And further require respondents comments to pass moderation (some random council employed person) while I can’t even edit my own spelling mistakes.
    Iron curtain much?
