Armidale Regional Council has embarked upon an aggressive program of commercial property development at its Regional Airport.
To meet the growing demand, nearly 90ha of development land has been released at the Airport, including the adjoining Airport east development.
The NSW Government announced in 2019 its Growing Local Economies Fund would provide $6 million for the $6.5 million project to install roads, water mains, telecommunications, National Broadband Network and other infrastructure at the site.
These fully serviced lots will drive economic development in the New England Region and will be marketed with competitive pricing to support infrastructure investment and jobs growth.
To enquire on the sale of land, contact First National Real Estate Armidale.
Stage 1 of the project commenced with contractors, KCE Pty Ltd, engaged through a tender process to complete the infrastructure works. Stage 1 construction is scheduled to be completed in August 2020.
Stage 1 consists of 24 lots for light industrial usage, which will house a new Service Centre and the long awaited Armidale Transport Museum. It will also include between 2,500 and 4,500 square metre lots which will be sold for business development. Over the coming months we will see internal roads start to take shape with kerb and guttering and the infrastructure put in place to provide water, storm water, sewerage, electricity and NBN fibre to each lot.
Lot levelling and grading and installation of sewer mainlines and stormwater lines to the lots is complete. A large portion of the roadway network has also been levelled ready for the first layers of road base. Sub-base preparation for roads and kerb and gutter is complete in some areas. Top soiling of lots, trenching for electrical and NBN and construction of a landscaping mound is also in progress. Testing of sewer mains commenced on 27 May.
