Eco-lodge claims green light

APPLE Tree Creek is going greener with a new 61-bed eco-lodge.

A proposal to develop the lodge in three stages has been approved by the Bundaberg Regional Council.

The development, aimed at providing short-term workers’ accommodation, will be built at 237 Stocks Road.

Stage 1 of the proposal will include two 12-bed cabins with a toilet and kitchen/dining block while stage 2 will include an additional 12-bed cabin.

A further two 12-bed cabins and additional toilet block and second kitchen plus a private one-bed cabin would comprise stage 3 of the development.

Bundaberg Regional Council planning and development spokesperson councillor Ross Sommerfeld said the proposed development was a terrific boost to the Childers district and would provide another facility for seasonal small crop workers and pickers.

He said the eco-lodge would directly support the Isis district’s agricultural and rural production areas by providing safe accommodation for rural workers in a suitable location within proximity of working farms.
