New home for Ravenshoe vet

A WELL-known veterinary service is set to expand its presence in Ravenshoe after Tablelands Regional Council last week approved a development application to move its premises.

Tablelands Veterinary Service currently operates out of a clinic in Moffatt Street, but will now move the business to 2 Ascham Street. 

The council’s approval means the company can get started converting the existing house on the land into a veterinary clinic which will include a waiting room, reception, consultation room, kitchen area, surgery, laundry and holding pens. 

The proposal also allows for a new parking and manoeuvring area, providing six car parking spaces. 

According to the council report, the primary focus of the new veterinary clinic will be the treatment of companion animals and will not include the treatment of large animals.

The development will not include the kennelling or boarding of healthy animals, although overnight stays would be allowed for animals recovering from surgery, and those kept for observation or other purposes.
