Retirement Village for 202 Units - DA Approved Development Opportunity

Right in the heart of the area identified as the "Medical Hub" under the Burdekin Shire Integrated Planning Scheme, lies this block of land ideally suited for a Retirement Village. With a DA in place, the hard work has already been done.

The locality contains a mixture of uses. Opposite Chippendale Street is the Lower Burdekin Home for the Aged Society with the Burdekin Community Rehabilitation Centre and the Ayr Medical Centre to the east of the site. Just 500 metres further you will get to the Ayr District Hospital. To the north, directly adjacent the site is agricultural land, and in the south-eastern corner is the ambulance services. Chippendale Street forms the southern boundary with single residential houses to the western boundary. Several other Family Care practices operate in the direct vicinity with a convenience store 550 metres down Chippendale Street in Cameron Street. Other uses in the area are mainly residential developments at varying densities.

The DA allows for a development plan that has 3 distinct areas:
* a residential precinct with :
- 52, one-bedroom units,
- 95, two-bedroom units,
- 55 three-bedroom units each with a garage,
* an administrative/community precinct with parking areas; and
* a recreational precinct which could be developed with a swimming pool and bowling green, recreation vehicle parking area, and,
* a communal men's shed.
