Design and Development Application
Council Staff and a planning consultant are presently focusing on preparation of the development application. The consultant will commence preparing the required drawings for the Development Application (DA) and Construction Certificate (CC) and then Council will utilise these drawings to advertise the tender in early 2024 for the construction of the modular building.

Powerline Relocation
The relocation of overhead powerlines has progressed to the design stage. A certified designer conducted a site survey to validate the route for the powerline cable through an underground trench to ensure the works are aligned with Essential Energy's easement requirements. The design works and the approval process with Essential Energy are expected to be completed by early 2024. Once approved, the next phase will be the underground cabling works which is expected to be carried out within the first quarter of 2024.
