THE final piece of the Blackbutt Hall has been moved to make way for the new supermarket development.

Councillor Gavin Jones said at the South Burnett Regional Council meeting on Wednesday that the two pieces of the hall were being rapidly put together.

The removal of the hall has been controversial within the council.

Aat the last meeting, Councillor Ros Heit disagreed with the council spending $500,000 on infrastructure and car parking for the hall in its new spot.

The council has allocated $250,000 for the work and has applied for State Government funding for the $250,000 more.

If the council is not successful in it's bid for funding the council will need to fund the full $500,000.

Mayor Keith Campbell said he had been to inspect the construction and said it would look fantastic when it was re-assembled.
