A new housing estate will be built in Collina after Council approved a development application at the Ordinary Meeting held on Tuesday 14 July 2020.
The manufactured home estate, to be known as Griffith Hill Estate, will include 129 dwellings, a two way internal road network with visitor parking, and community buildings incorporating recreation facilities such as a gym and swimming pool.
A community centre containing a bar, kitchen, theatre, games/craft room, communal dining hall and lounge and a Men’s shed type structure are also part of the successful application.
The new estate will be marketed to over 55’s essentially for a lifestyle retirement living community and the homes and construction of the associated infrastructure will be undertaken in stages.
Griffith City Council Mayor John Dal Broi said he was happy to see the development given the green light.
“We had quite a few some concerns from residents very early on, but that was before full details were disclosed. To their credit the developers were able to clear up any misconceptions and residents now appear to be satisfied,” he said.
“This style of housing will be a great benefit to our community. This is not a new concept, although it is for Griffith.
“As I see it, this provides another real estate option to our residents and anything that can help ease the market is welcomed.”
The development will be located on the east of Citrus Road, with a frontage to Calabria Road and a frontage to Rankin Springs Road.
The Lincoln Place development application was approved with a number of conditions including the installation of a J pole with concrete pad and seating in place for public transport use.
