Changes to property development make room for primary school

IPSWICH City Council has approved changes to the Fernbrooke Ridge Estate development at Redbank Plains, which allow room for a new state primary school earmarked by the State Government.

Councillor Paul Tully said council had originally approved 540 new residential lots for the estate in late 2012.

"Owing to a portion of the site being required by the state government, a number of changes had been made to the original approved subdivision layout, which required changes to the conditions of approval," Cr Tully said.

"As a result, the number of residential lots has been reduced to 501."

"A number of changes to the road and lot layout has also been approved to cater for the new school site."
