De­mo­li­tion to give way to de­vel­op­ment

Pilbara News - - News - Louise Alling­ham

De­mo­li­tion of Ex­mouth’s old RSL and Se­nior Cit­i­zens build­ings is ex­pected to be­gin in the next few weeks.

Shire of Ex­mouth chief ex­ec­u­tive Bill Price said both build­ings have been va­cant for some time and the de­mo­li­tion will give way to town de­vel­op­ment.

“Both build­ings are old and in var­i­ous states of dis­re­pair, so coun­cil de­cided that now was a good time to de­mol­ish, clear­ing the way for new de­vel­op­ment as part of the town cen­tre revitalisation plan,” he said.

“Un­der the cur­rent town plan- ning scheme the land is ear­marked for com­mer­cial de­vel­op­ment, but in the short term the area will be filled and used as over­flow park­ing for the town cen­tre shop­ping precinct.”
