Block sales boost council coffers

THREE blocks at Mareeba’s Industrial Park have been sold in the past three months adding $890,000 to Mareeba Shire Council’s coffers.

The three blocks were sold in December and January – one to a construction company and one for a warehouse.

One of the selling points for the blocks at the estate is that it is zoned for “heavy industry” which means it can accommodate a range of industrial uses including high impact industries like biotechnology, fuels, chemicals, manufacturing through to sales, logistics and storage. 

According to council’s website, there are around 20 blocks still ready for purchase after council recently developed the next stage of the area. But it is recommended prospective buyers make contact with a real estate agent to confirm current available land.

Council also has an abundant supply of land for future development stages and with competitive prices, the land remains attractive for business. 

“Mareeba Shire Council has priced the Industrial Park in consideration of the market and we believe the pricing is highly competitive, and certainly some of the cheapest industrial land in Queensland,” Mayor Angela Toppin said. 

Council’s marketing plan for the Industrial Park is currently under review to ensure it is being pushed to the right sectors. Since 2018, council has sold 15 individual blocks.
