Maidment Development Group has purchased a 16.4 hectare site in Beerwah for $4.25 million with development approval for 114 detached residential lots. The estate which is named Pineview Beerwah will be sold in four stages.

The Townsville-based privately owned residential developer is looking to expand into South East Queensland. They currently have an existing residential project Fairview Park Estate in Gympie.

Baydn Dodds, Senior Executive of Special Projects at Colliers International negotiated the off market transaction for the 94 Pine Camp Road site.

Mr Dodds said the developer was quick to prepare the project for market post settlement on 30th April considering it was already approved by the Council.

“After settlement Maidment quickly progressed with obtaining Operational Works approval and are currently marketing the project which they named Pineview Beerwah estate.

“The construction for stage one has commenced and the blocks in the first release are already selling.

“Maidment Development Group saw great potential in investing into the area due to the strong market for finished lots and house and land packages on the Sunshine Coast. This has in turn increased developers’ interest and demand for approved residential sites in the region.

“Developers can also see the potential impending land shortage on the Sunshine Coast, with a number of established projects nearing completion including: Stockland’s Brightwater at Mountain Creek, Australand’s Ivadale Lakes and AV Jennings Creekwood at Meridan Plains, QM Properties Forest Pines in Buderim and Parklakes 1 and Cutters Ridge in Bli Bli.”

According to Mr Dodds the expansion of the Beerwah Village Shopping Centre by addition of Target and IGA to the existing Woolworths and speciality shops is a good indication of investment into the region and provides developers with confidence that the area is set for growth.

Moreton Bay Rail Line shared pedestrian & cycle path



The State Government has been called upon to open a sharedMoreton Investor pedestrian and cycle path to make-up for the major signalling delays on the new Moreton Bay Rail Line.

“We are hoping they will open the shared pathway so the people can … use something that should already be open,” Mango Hill Progress Assoc President Laurence Christie said.

“It would go some way to relieving the disappointment,” he said.

A spokeswoman for Transport Minister Stirling Hinchliffe said: “The minister has ­requested the Department of Transport and Main Roads investigate opportunities to open the bikeway in advance of the rail line opening.”

Residents in Mango Hill, and North Lakes said they wanted to use the pathway to cycle to Petrie Station and to access the schools on the line.

Brisbane’s new state-of-the-art private cancer centre



Northlakes, north of Brisbane is now home to Australia’s first private integrated cancer centre


moreton investorThe Icon Integrated Cancer Centre combines a 15-chair day hospital, two radiation therapy units and an on-site pharmacy.

The doors were opened to the centre at North Lakes, between Brisbane’s CBD and the Sunshine Coast, yesterday.

All treatments, including haematological, chemotherapy, radiation or a combination, are delivered on the site.

Icon Group chief executive Mark Middleton said the centre had the capacity to deliver treatments to 15,000 patients per year.

“From the start, the patient and their needs are first,” he said.

“The integrated centre approach means we are working as one team, supporting the patient and the result is a comprehensive service delivered by familiar faces who understand the individual needs of their patients.”

North Lakes is the first of three integrated centres operated by the Icon Group, a private specialised cancer care organisation.

The group plans to open another in Melbourne in mid-June 2017 and a third in Canberra, expected to open in late 2017.

North Lakes and Mango Hill Police Station has its first female acting officer-in-charge




NORTH Lakes/Mango Hill Police Station has its first ­female police officer leading the station, since it opened in 2009.

Senior Sergeant Kate Pausina joined the North Lakes crew last week as acting officer-in-charge after an ­impressive resume in the blue uniform.

Since she was sworn in to the service in 1999, Sen-Sgt Pausina has spent time in juvenile justice, child sex ­offences, Coroner’s Office, intelligence and strategy, road safety and, most recently, acting officer-in-charge at Albany Creek Police Station.

“I always wanted to join the police, but my mum wouldn’t let me,” Sen-Sgt said. “So, instead, I studied nursing and was a registered nurse for four years before I decided to do what I really wanted to.”

Sen-Sgt Pausina said her mum was unhappy at first but had since become her biggest ­supporter, along with her police officer husband and their two children.

Sen-Sgt Pausina last year completed her Masters of ­Suicidology – the prevention of suicide.

“That is something I am ­really passionate about,” she said.

“In the Coroner’s ­Office, you see the number of suicides is three times the number of road fatalities. And it is a preventable death.”

Sen-Sgt Pausina said she fondly remembered her first stint at the Pine ­Rivers Police District. She was based at ­Petrie from 2000 to 2003, and ­visited Mango Hill. “Mango Hill was just that – bushland and mango trees,” she said.

“There is a lot coming up in this area – major ­shopping developments, major infrastructure like the rail and, with that, a lot more people visiting the area.”
