Sunshine Coast Council has given preliminary approval for a master planned staged residential development within the Parklakes II development site in Bli Bli.
Division 9 Councillor Steve Robinson said the preliminary approval is fantastic progress towards the creation of a new precinct that will bring jobs to boost the local economy and a place for many new young families to call Bli Bli home.
“The approved master plan outlines a staged approach to development that will include a precinct specifically for parklands and three residential precincts one of which has the potential to develop into a retirement village.
“A further precinct is to establish a school for up to 1500 students that also has the potential to include an ancillary church and child care centre,” Cr Robinson.
“The final precinct will be dedicated to council for the establishment of a community or sporting facility.”
Cr Robinson said the project will shape the future direction of Bli Bli by creating a wonderful place to live, raise families, establish a community and enjoy a healthy lifestyle.
“The 94 hectare parcel is located between Parklakes II to the south and rural residential development to the north.
“Site access will be gained from a new roundabout on Yandina-Bli Bli Road, with secondary access from Camp Flat Road and East View Court.
“Extensive flood modelling has been undertaken and the development can achieve Q100 flood immunity including flood free access to the future school and residences.
“The preliminary development approval is a great example of Sunshine Coast Council striving to make the region the most sustainable place in Australia – a sustainable economy, environment and community.”
Parklakes Director, Robert Flipp said he was delighted to have the Parklakes II master plan approved.
“With just 100 lots remaining in Parklakes I, the timing is perfect to commence the next stage of the development,” Mr Flipp said.
“The end result is a great outcome for the Sunshine Coast Council, the developers and the local community.
“We look forward to working with all our stakeholders to deliver an outstanding master planned community of which we can all be proud.”
Mr Flipp anticipates construction will start later this year and the first residents will be calling Parklakes II home in late 2015 or early 2016.
