Family sized blocks planned for Maleny

A NEW development proposal to Sunshine Coast Council over part of a large lot in Maleny, fronting Bridge Creek Road from the intersection with Palm Street, promises ample space for the family.

In a shift away from sardine-style development, the subdivision will create 34 new lots with block sizes starting at a generous 800m2 up to 1,500m2.

The largest of the 34 lots will be a 5ha rural block, as it sits within a section currently zoned as rural. On this block, the planning report specifies that all identified remnant vegetation and koala habitat is to be retained.

This provision will provide an attractive rural westerly outlook for the subdivision, ensuring that the Maleny character is maintained.

This development comes on top of recent proposals for 65 housing lots off Bunya Street and a multiple dwelling (23 units) and rooming accommodation (70 beds) application on Teak Street.
