Sekisui House will be undertaking investigation works on its Yaroomba Beach site over the next couple of months in preparation for the start of development.
Sekisui House is still waiting for the judgement from the Court of Appeal in relation to the Yaroomba Beach development approval. That proposal would create a new coastal village that offers a variety of housing choices, community open spaces, local jobs, and world class tourism infrastructure, including the first 5-star resort on the Sunshine Coast in more than 30 years.
An earlier approval for the site, for a gated estate of apartments and houses, is still current and will also be accommodated in the site investigation works to be conducted.
The investigation works include geotechnical testing, services identification and surveying.
Project Director Evan Aldridge said it was prudent to collect additional site information required to cover both development options while waiting for the judgement from the Court of Appeal later this year.
