Good news for Mossman residents.

After years of knock-backs, the Aged Care Facility in Mossman is taking a step closer to realisation.

Construction on the building is slated to start in April with external civil works on roads, sewage and water supply to go ahead next month.

Aged Care Plus CEO Sharon Callister said it's breaking down barriers for Mossman locals as the nearest facility at the moment is 80kms away.
