Citiswich to add gym, cafe to zone


IPSWICH City Council has given approval for a further four lots to be developed at Citiswich Business Park near Dinmore.

Council's Planning and Development chairman Paul Tully said the new lots would form part of the development's stage 2B.

The estate is planned to be developed over the next five to 10 years and is proposed to include a cafe, gym, child care and community recreation precincts.

Cr Tully said council welcomed the further development of Citiswich as it would provide local residents with access to a significant number of jobs.

Ultimately Citiswich is expected to be the base for industries employing up to 5000 people.

Division Four Councillor Trevor Nardi said the developer would be required to pay $761,628 to council for infrastructure for Stage 2B.

"A concrete path also must be constructed between Hoepner Road and Earl Street South, Dinmore to create a link for pedestrians and cyclists between Dinmore Station and the development site," Cr Nardi said.

Citiswich Business Park is Walker Corporation's largest project, valued at over $1 billion.
