The Queensland Government's recently released Great Keppel Island (Woppa) Concept Master Plan identifies a number of immediate priorities that must be undertaken to secure the viability of existing tourism operators and underpin future economic growth on the island.

These priorities include replacing the existing wastewater treatment plant and improving public amenities on Fishermen's Beach.

With funding provided through the Building Our Regions funding program, administered by the Department of State Development, Infrastructure, Local Government and Planning (DSDILGP), Council are well advanced on a business case that is a major step towards construction of a new wastewater treatment plant and public amenities.

We anticipate that outcomes of the business case will be presented at the June Ordinary Council meeting for consideration by the Council.

In consultation with the Queensland Government, Council will then determine how the project will proceed, including final scope, funding arrangements and delivery schedule.

As part of the business case, Council will also consider an appropriate operating model (sewerage charges) for the Great Keppel Island Wastewater Treatment Plant.

We look for forward to working with all stakeholders to progress this project and other key priorities from the Great Keppel Island (Woppa) Concept Master Plan in the future.
