Bunnings draft plans available
IT'S unlikely Bunnings Warehouse's plans to build a new store in Kingaroy will get final approval until the middle of next year.
According to the development application tendered to South Burnett Regional Council, the total retail space of the Kingaroy store will be about 7597sqm.
Of this about 3893sqm with be the main retail shed.
The outdoor nursery, soil and stone sale area will be about 1523sqm.
A timber trade sale area will be about 1399sqm while the landscaping yard will be 730sqm.
Bunnings has planned 203 parking spaces, four disabled spots and four trailer bays.
While the council has received a draft of the building application, more information is needed.
It's unlikely the final plans for the project will proceed to community consultation before early 2018.
This pushes the estimated date of the council approving the project to mid-2018.
The timeline could shorten if the State Government approves the council's new planning scheme soon.
In this case, the land currently under development would be rezoned to allow for this scale of construction.
