Progress for $1 billion NQ resort proposal
Landmark Projects is behind the North Queensland Country Club Resort and Equestrian Centre proposal.
Member for Townsville Scott Stewart said the developer estimated construction of Stage 1 could start in 2022, subject to approvals, and the resort could commence operations two years later.
The country club would provide luxury accommodation buildings, retailing, conference and function facilities, restaurants and a world-class equestrian centre
The project could support 300 full-time jobs during construction and many more operational jobs once fully developed.
State Development Minister Cameron Dick said the development would prove a real boost for North Queensland’s economy.
“These terms of reference follow public consultation and will ensure potential impacts on the natural, social and economic environment are appropriately considered,” he said.
“Landmark Projects will now prepare a draft EIS, and once that satisfies Queensland’s independent Coordinator-General the community will have another opportunity to have their say on the project.”
