THE proposed $5.6 million Bundaberg integrated cancer care centre is one step closer to fruition, after the sale of a block of land was approved this week.

The 2500sq m block of land runs between Bourbong and Woongarra Sts, near Bundaberg Hospital, and will be home to the new centre, which will offer radiation and chemotherapy treatment for Bundaberg cancer patients.

Irwin Strous, a director of Oceania Oncology, the group behind the project, said the sale had been approved subject to a Health Program Grant and Health and Hospitals funding, as well as development application approval.

"The funding agreement might take one month or three - we don't know how long it will take," he said.

The funding for the cancer care centre was announced during the release of the Federal Government's budget last week.

Mr Strous said the main entrance to the cancer centre would be from Woongarra St, but it could also be accessed from the Bourbong St side.

He said the land had been sold to Oceania Oncology for an undisclosed sum, and that subdivision would need to occur on the site.

"The next step is to apply to council for the development approval for the site," he said.

"If we are successful, we will look to get building approval."

Mr Strous said the proposed centre would have two radiation bunkers, and another building for the medical oncology service.
