Committee formed to oversee original town site plans

A COMMITTEE to oversee the new development application for Maryborough's historic original town site has been formed.

It includes Maryborough architect Marian Graham, council chief executive Lisa Desmond, councillors George Seymour, Chris Loft and Phil Truscott and the manager of the council's economic and development projects.

Forming the committee was part of a resolution passed by Fraser Coast Council that also approved the existing application for the historic site to be scrapped.

A new application will be made based on a master plan for the site first developed by the now-defunct Maryborough City Council in 2003.

The resolution, led by Cr Seymour with amendments by Cr Loft, also included approval for a share of the profits of any development to go towards a tourism and heritage precinct on the site.

The master plan is available for the public to view on frasercoast.qld.gov.au.

Ms Desmond told councillors a new development application would not require public notification.
