Townsville Council approves Hugh Street Development

The Townsville City Council voted today on whether or not to approve a new shopping centre at our current Mike Carney Toyota Park. The vote was a 7-4 split in favour of the new development! This is great news for Townsville Rugby as it will allow for a new development at the Murray Sports Complex. The development is still likely to end up in Environmental and Planning court due to pressure from local traders. For more information visit the link below.

The TDRU still needs Community Support for new complex

If you’re attending Friday or Saturday finals this weekend please show your support for our plan to move to Murray by signing the petition at the front gate.   Council’s Planning and Development Committee have approved the Hugh Street site for development, but it is yet to be approved through full council.
