Council approves 103-lot Kearneys Spring development

PLANS to turn the site of the Fairway Golf Driving Range into a 103-lot housing subdivision have been approved by Toowoomba Regional Council.

Cr Anne Glasheen was the only councillor to vote against the Kearneys Spring development at a special meeting this afternoon.

An area of 8.546 hectares will be subdivided between Kearney and Ruthven Sts.

Cr Glasheen questioned whether or not land zoned for community use should be approved for residential development.

"I think putting 103 houses besides sporting fields with vehicles, lights and parking is opening us up for complaints," Cr Glasheen said.

Council engineers also responded to queries about the potential stormwater the development would create and how it would impact the flow of West Ck.

They referred to reports which identified the effects as minimal.
