Granville vision has more homes, units around Mary Harbour

THE Fraser Coast Regional Council's vision for Granville is for more homes and a cluster of units surrounding the proposed Mary Harbour.

The changes are outlined in the Granville draft local plan that has recently been released for public consultation.

Its release followed the Maryborough town being identified as a key growth zone in the Wide Bay Burnett Regional Plan.

Fraser Coast Mayor Gerard O'Connell said the Mary Harbour proposal had been on the horizon for some time and it would become the central feature for future development in Granville.

"The Mary Harbour is probably the big project that's happening and Maryborough Sugar Fact

ory has the application on that one," Cr O'Connell said.

"In the course of talking with them we've done this structure plan because, obviously there's some traffic flow implications for the Granville Bridge and then there's infrastructure for water and sewage."

Cr O'Connell said most of the service infrastructure would then link in with the council's proposed marine industrial precinct.

The future Granville

  • Mary Harbour as the centre of new development
  • Multi-storey unit complexes beside harbour
  • Scope for possible further expansion east of Walkers Point Rd
