New restaurant set for Amaroo

A NEW restaurant is one step closer to opening in Amaroo Estate after Mareeba Shire Council approved an amendment to the development application at its last meeting.

The original application allowed the developer to begin building the restaurant in stage three of the project, but they can now start building in stage two instead.

Set to be built next to the playground, Mayor Angela Toppin said the development would positively impact the vast growing Mareeba community. 

“A strong sign of confidence is gauged by the value of building approvals within the Shire and suburbs like Amaroo contribute to this growth. In 2022/23 the total value of both residential and non-residential approvals reached over $54.7 million,” she said.

“The Amaroo estate is a residential housing estate placed on the Cairns side of Mareeba. The estate continues to expand, providing land availability for our growing community. 

“Along with the expansion, Council continues to maintain infrastructure that not only sustains industry and development, but also supports future growth of Mareeba and the region.”

“In the previous financial year Council constructed the Mareeba East Park (Amaroo) playground. A master plan that details future upgrades to the park is currently being developed, with community input, to keep up with our growing community.”
