Building continues to grow on the Cassowary coast

The Cassowary Coast Regional Council has continued to experience growth in the building sector with continued building approvals for new homes, sheds, industrial buildings, commercial buildings, and renovations.

Planning and Regional Development portfolio holder Councillor Nicholas Pervan said 2021 has exceeded all expectations.

“This unprecedented growth reflects the growing attitude that the Cassowary Coast is a desirable place to live, work and play,” Cr Pervan said. 

“In 2021, there was a total of 486 building approvals issued, from January to October, worth over $57 million. 

“Council has also had a positive result for the Council-owned residential subdivision at Gourley and Campbell Streets in Tully. 

“The subdivision, which sat dormant for many years, has had 14 out of 18 blocks sold with the remaining four blocks now under contract. 

“The sale of these blocks in Tully is extremely positive and will provide for new and alternative housing stock with Council approving three duplexes in the subdivision,” he said. 

As 2021 draws to a close, the Planning Services Team is excited for what 2022 has to bring for the Cassowary coast region.
