Possible Business Opportunities and market niches:
Forget about replicating over-50's villages, an excellent business opportunity presents for the construction of 'group homes' for persons who are seeking home-like options when they need residential aged care which has been criticized as 'ware-housing' and 'institutionalization' and where many aged or people with disabilities believe that they no longer have control over their decisions and their lifestyles. Group homes are gaining in popularity and are seen as a lucrative investment in the aged and disability care market. Potential for a small community precinct/hub which offers a Club; small, retail shops selling food and drinks and offering services such as medical care, hairdressing, U3A and entertainment opportunities, to the extent that those living in this community may rarely need to leave this 'community' and which could be marketed as a 'gated community'. This site offers this opportunity, and, if purchased with the adjoining large parcel of land, offers a fabulous market opportunity for the construction of group homes including 'apartments for life', which are increasingly sought after and which are over-subscribed in Queensland - see Young Care. Optimal for ageing parents of persons with disabilities who not only wish to co-habit, but wish for the younger person to be independent but able to access care, services and support while having parents close by in case of emergencies. This model is experiencing high demand but there is minimal supply in Queensland. (See Group Homes Australia which is gaining momentum and popularity in NSW). Great opportunity to take advantage of the NDIS (National Disability Insurance Scheme) which will provide monies to eligible recipients to pay for accommodation and care for persons with a disability.
Consideration for developing a creche, before and after school care Childcare Centre which would cater for siblings and children who attend St Eugene's School which is located at the end of the same access road, would provide busy parents with a one stop 'drop-off' facility and protection for children from a busy main road plus the need for parents to negotiate very busy main roads on which other childcare centres in the area are located. Great benefit from the signal intersection which controls traffic effectively and avoids the necessity for parents/friends/family to try to enter busy traffic flows at peak times of the day. A small convenience store collocated would enhance the 'one stop shop' opportunity as would a fitness club which parents could access at drop-offs and/or pick-ups - plus attract membership from the local community and potentially patronage from three of the large schools which, in Burpengary, are located no more than 5 kms apart .
The zoning allows for Medium and high density housing including apartments, plexes, row or terrace housing, townhouses and managed communities.
The zoning categorizes developments on this site as 'self-assessable' based on advice from the Moreton Bay Regional Council.
Zoning based on Council guidelines for urban:

Non-residential uses include:
Community activities - such as a child care centre, club, community care centre, community use, educational establishment, emergency service, health care services, place of worship; and small scale retail and commercial activities when they are clustered to form a neighbourhood hub - such as food and drink outlets, hardware and trade supplies, office, service industry, shops, veterinary services.
