More than 700 new homes to be built within six years

THE final piece of a puzzle has fallen into place to allow more than 700 new homes to be built within six years in the Eli Waters growth corridor.

The Fraser Coast Regional Council voted on Wednesday to grant a development permit for a 529-lot project.

The new development is an extension of the Mariners Cove estate in the area of Grinsteads Rd and Pialba-Burrum Heads Rd.

Gold Coast company the Potter Group is behind the project, and its development manager Brent Hailey said the new area would now be know as the Sanctuary.

Mr Hailey said infrastructure would be built to improve traffic flow in the Eli Waters corridor as part of the project.

"There's a lot of new infrastructure planned; we've been working on the site for the best part of six years," Mr Hailey said.

A set of traffic lights will be added at the intersection of Pialba- Burrum Heads Rd and Drury Lane.

Infrastructure would be built as certain numbers of lots were developed.

Mr Hailey also suggested there was scope near Sorrensons Rd for commercial interests.

Project details

  • 529 lots
  • Lot sizes range in areas from 450sq m to 1290sq m
  • 249 small lots of less than 600 sq m

  • 119 hectares of land for environmental purposes
