THE first sod was turned this week for the construction of a Men's Shed in Innes Park, but now the organisation is worried about how to pay the charges on the building.

The Men's Shed will be housed in a large new building in the grounds of the Coral Coast Christian Church in Windermere Rd.

Spokesman Bob Kelsey said the organisation had been operating for several years in the church's Sunday school building, but that was much too small.

Mr Kelsey said a Federal Government grant had been obtained to buy the shed.

But now the group is faced with paying thousands of dollars in fees to Bundaberg Regional Council.

"They charged us $3600 for planning permission.

"Now they've given us two years to pay $9600 in infrastructure charges."

Mr Kelsey said the Men's Shed was run as a non-profit, charitable organisation, and he was unsure about how they would raise the money.

The shed will be complete in about three weeks.
