A development application for a new Woodgate service station has been approved by Bundaberg Regional Council.
The application was lodged over a vacant lot at 12 Frizzells Road, Woodgate with the proposed development incorporating 14 Frizzzells Road, the site of the current convenience store.
The applicant intends to utilise the convenience store as the point of service for the service station.
The Material Change of Use application for a service station was lodged with Bundaberg Regional Council in July this year.
The application 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 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 Woodgate service station, on a site area of 1200 m sq, is set to 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 Woodgate service station would be constructed in a “modern commercial structure finished in corporate colours”.
