Workers' camp planned

FEEDBACK is sought on a proposal for non-resident workers' accommodation in Moranbah.

The Urban Land Development Authority (ULDA) has received a developmental application from mining accommodation provider The MAC Services Group for a 3200-room facility to be located on 50 hectares in the south-west of the Moranbah Urban Development Area.

The community will have 20 business days to submit feedback to the ULDA once the application goes on public notification.

It will be made aware when the period begins through advertisements in newspapers and signage on the proposed site.

It is anticipated the formal submission period would not begin until late January 2012.

UDLA chief executive Paul Eagles said the association had liaised closely with Isaac Regional Council to ensure that The MAC's proposal met the development scheme criteria and associated guidelines.

The MAC developmental application can be viewed on the UDLA website - www.ulda.qld.gov.au.
