Planning has begun for the final stage of Nanango’s Heritage Lodge project after the announcement on Friday of a $250,000 grant from Heritage Nanango Community Funding.
The grant will be matched dollar-for-dollar by South Burnett CTC.
Heritage Lodge provides long-term housing for people with disabilities. The mini-estate in Dalby Street has been a long-term project between South Burnett CTC and Heritage Nanango.
Planning began in 2012 with the first stage officially opened in 2016.
There are currently eight units on site, in four duplexes.
South Burnett CEO Nina Temperton said the new extension would be a five-bedroom building which will house four residents and a carer.
It will have the same footprint as the existing duplexes and be built in the same style to match the rest of the estate.
A shed will also be constructed nearby to serve as a garage, storage area and possibly a communal workshop.
Heritage Nanango Community Funding chair Wendy Zerbst said the fund had been happy to back the project.
“We have been pleased to support it since it all began,” she said.
Nina and Wendy emphasised this latest stage had received no government funding.
“It is just us – CTC and Heritage,” Nina said.
Wendy said the HNCF was delighted to be making a real difference in the lives of Heritage Lodge residents.
HNCF is a not-for-profit, volunteer-run organisation.
It distributes its share of Heritage Community Branch Nanango profits back to the community in grants for local organisations and events.
