Aquis – fastest approvals process ever

Cairns MP Gavin King is confident the $4.2 billion Aquis Great Barrier Reef Resort at Yorkeys Knob project will be approved by mid next year.

But he is assuring Queenslanders that environmental concerns will not be swept aside despite the project receiving the fastest approvals process the state government has ever undertaken. Queensland’s coordinator general is currently considering the environmental impact statement for the Aquis Great Barrier Reef Resort.

Mr King said, “James Cook University has been involved, a whole range of environmental experts to look in very, very fine detail all of the issues that may have arisen and this is old cane paddocks that we’re talking about of course.”

“They want to start construction middle of next year and I think we’ve demonstrated as a state government that we’ve done that in a timely fashion…”

Hong Kong businessman Tony Fung plans the biggest tourism property development Australia has seen. Aquis Great Barrier Reef Resort will have nine hotels with 3750 rooms plus 1200 apartments, a sports stadium, a convention centre, an 18-hole golf course and an aquarium clustered around an aquatic paradise.
