Kelly Street Development, Magnetic Island

Council conducted a community consultation session regarding the lodgement of a Development Application (MI17/0020) on Saturday 22nd July 2017. This application is for additional industrial land at 55 – 77 Kelly Street, Nelly Bay to service the Magnetic Island community.

More than 50 people attended the consultation session and 43 submissions were received in regards to the application. The feedback received from the community is currently being reviewed and considered by council.

Formal Public Notification, as required under the Sustainable Planning Act 2009, will take place for 30 business days early next year. This process involves publishing a notice in the newspaper, placing a notice on the land, and providing a notice to the owners of all land directly adjoining the site.

More information on the public notification period for this development will be provided in early 2018. The Town Planning Report (Preliminary Approvals) can be viewed and downloaded on ePlanning, council's online planning portal.

Please note that the current proposal is likely to be amended prior to formal Public Notification, to take into consideration matters raised during the consultation session.
