Beef City project approved by TRC
Toowoomba Regional Council has approved an application by JBS Beef City to extend previously approved plans to construct new plate freezers at the Aubigny site.
The original application was approved in October 2008 and involved plans to extend the existing meat processing facility with new plate freezers, fine textured meat room and red offal area.
This extension was to total 365m2. The new plans, first lodged in early March, will increase the size of the plate freezers from 168m2 to 363m2.
The extension is required “due to the need for additional meat storage on site”. The new building is located to the north western end of the existing facility and attached to the Carton Chill Tunnel. The approved extension will also result in relocating car parking spaces and additional pavement.
