Traveston plan gets green light

GYMPIE Regional Council yesterday overturned a staff recommendation and allowed a change of land use in Traveston Crossing Rd, despite conflict with the regional plan.

Councillors in favour of the proposal argued successfully that the land involved was adjacent to, though not in, an area where the proposed use, servicing and repair of heavy vehicles, would be allowable.

They also argued that the proposal would have no detrimental effect on the area, would provide six jobs and would use a road likely to be under-utilised after the opening of a new high-level Traveston Crossing bridge.

They said the plan did not have to be "slavishly followed", despite concerns they should avoid setting a precedent of varying the planning scheme in individual cases.
