Kawana Business Village could be set to grow
  • Thursday 25 September 2008

A proposal for a 139 unit complex and restaurant at the Kawana Business Village, a short distance from the proposed new Kawana Town Centre, received support at today’s Sunshine Coast Council Strategy and Planning Committee meeting with councillors referring the report to next week’s Ordinary Meeting for further consideration.

The report to the committee recommended approval of the $20 million plus complex proposed for the Business Village at Innovation Parkway, Kawana.

Regional Director of Regional Strategy and Planning, Warren Bunker, said the proposed development was in a line with the requirements of Master Plans already in place for the area.

“Although a large development, the proposal is in keeping with the scale of development in the Kawana Business Village and the adjoining future Town Centre.

“This means that the proposal meets the six storey building height maximum limit and other criteria in terms of density, site coverage, carparking and use, which have been approved for that location.”

Division One Councillor Anna Grosskreutz said she supported the recommendation.

“The committee also suggested additional conditions to address the installation of rainwater tanks to improve water conservation and erosion and sediment conditions to help maintain the quality of the lake,” Cr Grosskreutz said.

Councillors on the committee referred the recommendation for approval, with conditions, to the Ordinary Meeting to be held at Council’s Tewantin office on Thursday 2 October for consideration by the whole Council.
