Sikh As­so­ci­a­tion ex­ten­sion ap­proved

Comment News (Gosnells) - - NEWS -

THE City of Gos­nells has ap­proved the Sikh As­so­ci­a­tion of WA’s (SAWA) ap­pli­ca­tion to ex­tend its premises on Shreeve Road.

The as­so­ci­a­tion plans to build a two-storey ex­ten­sion next to its cur­rent tem­ple.

The ground floor will pro­vide dish­wash­ing and toi­let fa­cil­i­ties, while the first floor will in­clude class­rooms, an of­fice, li­brary, moth­ers’ room and stor­age.

Con­struc­tion will not in­fringe on any other prop­er­ties in the vicin­ity, as the as­so­ci­a­tion plans to build on avail­able land within the lot.

SAWA trea­surer Paramjit Singh Na­gra said they des­per­ately required more room.

“We're a bit tight over here; we’ve got a lot of peo­ple com­ing in who want to have meet­ings ev­ery Sun­day,” he said.

“You can imag­ine 100 peo­ple want­ing to have rooms. They want pri­vacy.”

The coun­cil sent con­sul­ta­tion let­ters to 249 nearby prop­er­ties and re­ceived seven ob­jec­tions to the project.
