Thabeban could soon be a farm produce hub

A FARM produce packing and handling development may soon be headed for Thabeban.

The massive project would have a main building with three separate warehouses, in addition to a main administration office, a loading dock and hardstand to accommodation 25m B doubles.

The industrial development comes from Simon Fuhrmann of Brisbane based FP Solutions Pty Ltd and is proposed for 7767sq m of land on the corner of Charlie Triggs Cres and Kay McDuff Dr.

The site is across the road from Beasley's Hydraulic Services and The Door Keeper.

If approved, the building would be built on to cover 4050sq m of the block.

The Bundaberg Regional Council is currently accessing the development application compiled by Brisbane based Consult Planning director Aaron Sweet.

In his application to the council, Mr Sweet said the proposal demonstrated "an acceptable outcome".

"And warrants approval subject to reasonable and relevant conditions," Mr Sweet wrote.

In minutes from a pre-lodgement meeting between Mr Furhmann, Mr Sweet and representative from the council including development assessment manager Richard Jenner, Mr Jenner stated it was "an exciting project".

"And the council's development assessment team looks forward to assisting where required," Mr Jenner wrote.
