Store to be con­verted

North Coast Times - - NEWS -

HOME Con­sor­tium has re­ceived ap­proval to con­vert the for­mer Mas­ters store in But­ler.

The Metro North-West De­vel­op­ment Assess­ment Panel ap­proved its ap­pli­ca­tion to change the in­ter­nal lay­out to ac­com­mo­date show­rooms, mar­ket stalls and a take­away out­let.

At the Au­gust 23 meet­ing, panel mem­bers agreed to Plan­ning So­lu­tions as­so­ciate Scott Vin­cent’s re­quest to re­move ref­er­ence to the num­ber of ten­an­cies as the ex­act num­ber was not rel­e­vant for plan­ning pur­poses.

Mr Vin­cent also asked for a change to have graf­fiti re­moved within 14 days rather than seven, but the panel stuck with the week­long limit to be con­sis­tent with other de­vel­op­ment ap­provals.

The City of Wan­neroo’s plan­ning im­ple­men­ta­tion manager Pas Bra­cone said seven days seemed to be “rea­son­able” and no one had raised is­sues with that in the past.

There was also dis­cus­sion about the waste col­lec­tion, with a con­di­tion re­quir­ing a waste man­age­ment plan that would min­imise dis­rup­tion to the res­i­den­tial prop­er­ties.

Coun­cil­lor Rus­sell Driver said the com­mu­nity had been wait­ing for plans to make sure the store, which has been va­cant since late 2016, was used again.

Home Con­sor­tium did not re­spond to re­quests for com­ment.
