UPDATE: Project Approved

Upon our initial application Council issued a request for further information, which we responded to. The good news now is that the project has final approval and can proceed to the next stage of delivery.

We are currently working on finalising internal designs, progressing hydraulic drawings for the plumbing application, a liquor licence application, and food premises application.

Project Details

RG Strategic lodged a town planning application for the Material Change of Use for 115 Poinciana Avenue, Tewantin, for a food and drink outlet.

The developers are looking to convert the old bank location to a new dining experience within the existing tenancy and a small extension at the rear.

The food and drink outlet, called Nickels and Dimes, will comprise patron tables and seating, kitchen storage, cold rooms and toilets (including disabled) inside the existing building and new kitchen, deck, bin storage and pedestrian access to the rear of the building. It will be a food and drink outlet to be experienced.

Project architects Robinson Architects have proposed a painted vertical timber product for the new kitchen, batten screening and fibre cement sheet, with at-grade and raised garden beds to screen the rear car parking of the neighbouring property. Further raised and vertical landscaping is used to soften an existing extra-large wall of the western neighbour and for ambience for the patrons.

The site has access to all infrastructure that commonly services urban development, including reticulated water and sewerage, underground telecommunication services, overhead electricity supply, street lighting, stormwater drainage, bitumen roadway, and kerb and channelling along the road frontage of the site.

When we made the decision to re-launch the Noosa Enduro, Russell and his team at RG Strategic was the first phone call we made. Russell's immense knowledge of the local council landscape and processes were vital to our event to ensure correct planning, applications and permits were in place. The professionalism shown throughout all of our high level dealings and documents elevated our event and helped provide confidence to all key stakeholders. I'm thrilled we made the decision to engage Russell and the team at RG Strategic and I will remain a client for many years to come.

Russell and the team at RG Strategic were extremely efficient with helping to provide our business with our Liquor Licence. We engaged with them based off of their reputation, having represented other high-profile restaurants in the area. They kept us updated throughout the process and made it very seamless and simple. We feel very supported and appreciate the team's incredible service. We are glad to have worked with Russell and RG Strategic. Thanks again :)
