Mega-Resort Has Landowners Torn Residents' Concern over Water Supply; While Cherrabah's New Development Could Bring 300 Jobs, Locals Say the Resort's Water Allocation Could Impact on Their Own Future

The development application notice for 934 residential/resort lots by Joyful View Garden Real Estate, owners of the Cherrabah Resort, was yesterday lodged with council.

Pre-approval with 62 conditions attached to it was already granted by council for the development of the 846.4 hectare site, which will include a golf course, conference centre, shopping centre and other recreation facilities.

The applicants say the resort could give a huge boost to regional tourism, providing 200 to 300 jobs, and many more in its construction phase.

Along with Mr O'Dea and a group of neighbours, he has fought the water allocation, which they fear could have a huge impact.

With questions lingering over the reliability and sustainability of Cherrabah's underground water source, it is not yet clear whether ratepayers could have to foot the bill for town water should supplies run out. …
