Cherrabah decision faces new delay

A DECISION on the next move by the Southern Downs Regional Council on the controversial Cherrabah Resort expansion plan has been put off until a special council meeting on Monday.

As reported, the Chinese owners of Cherrabah have lodged a court action against the council in a bid to overturn conditions of approval of the development which they claim are unreasonable.

These conditions include road upgrades in the Elbow Valley district and the provision of a fire station at what will effectively be a mini-city, with 2000 permanent residents and as many tourists.

At a Planning Committee meeting last week councillors resolved to write to the State Government, requesting it to take over the decision-making on Cherrabah, which it can do under ministerial planning powers.

But the matter was held up after further debate at the general council meeting on Wednesday, with councillors agreeing to seek further planning and legal advice before deciding on the best course of action.

It is not known at this stage if Monday's special meeting of the council in Warwick will be closed to the public and to the media.
