The Toowoomba Regional Council has approved a development application from Country Club Living for a 183-unit retirement village in its western region after more than six months of consultation.
The development will also house a golf course, tennis court and croquet garden with five different villa types offered to prospective residents.
Country Club Living, who have villages in SE QLD and regional VIC, lodged the DA in May of 2020, which we reported on here, and it took a lot of community consultation to finally approve the application.
Toowoomba Regional Council senior planner Sophie Spencer recommended the development for approval, subject to nearly 160 conditions.
Country Club currently has around 1,500 units in its portfolio and a pipeline of $500 million development projects.
The retirement village will be built on a parcel of land adjacent to the Essence Estate subdivision.
