Proposed Retirement Village
At present the current Sanctuary Cove Resort Act 1985 (the ‘Act’) and Sanctuary Cove Regulation 2009 (the ‘Regulation’) do not contemplate the provision of a retirement village. Therefore, it will be necessary for the Act to be amended to facilitate development for a retirement village within Sanctuary Cove. Aveo, in cooperation with the PTBC is making a submission to the State Government to amend the Sanctuary Cove Resort Act 1985 and the regulations to:
A. add an additional Zone of retirement village under the Sanctuary Cove Resort Act 1985 and add retirement facility and residential care facility as approved uses in this zone; or
B. add retirement village as approved use under the General Residential Zone; and
C. alter the site zoning boundaries.
In the 2014 Sanctuary Cove Resident Survey, the residents of Sanctuary Cove identified that the inclusion of a retirement village is one of the top five changes that would be supported within Sanctuary Cove. Aveo would like to work with the Sanctuary Cove community to create a retirement village on the Recreation Club site, as Aveo's core customer offering is providing living options for older Australians within retirement villages. Aveo seeks to drive continuous improvements within the retirement living sector in order to meet our residents' expectations, recent examples of this include entering into strategic agreements with allied health businesses and implementing in-home support and care services through community home care partners such as RSL Care here in Queensland.
