Division 1 Councillor David Morrison
said the community had been eagerly
looking forward to the further
development of the centre.
“It will also provide some
entertainment options for the
community with the addition of a

“ The extension to the centre will
considerably increase the size of the
existing 32,000 square metre centre and
give shoppers more choice.
Cr Morrison said the developer had
four years from the date of council’s
approval to complete these works.
