Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

THE Bel­mont Fo­rum shop­ping cen­tre will re­ceive up­grades, in­clud­ing a new restau­rant, out­door din­ing area and pub­lic seat­ing ar­eas along the Bel­mont Venue road verge.

The City of Bel­mont ap­proved the up­grades, with con­di­tions, at its last meet­ing.

A coun­cil re­port said the works would be along the road verge por­tion of Bel­mont Av­enue be­tween Ful­ham and Wright streets.

“The ap­proved de­vel­op­ment pro­poses a se­ries of restau­rants in place of the ex­ist­ing blank façade,” it said.

“An out­door (al­fresco) din­ing area sup­ple­ments each of the restau­rant ten­an­cies.

“To com­ple­ment this, the ap­pli­cant has pro­posed de­vel­op­ment of pub­lic seat­ing ar­eas, a small stage area for small per­for­mances or busk­ing, up­graded land­scap­ing and paving in the Bel­mont Av­enue road verge.”

The Met­ro­pol­i­tan Cen­tral Joint De­vel­op­ment Ap­pli­ca­tion Panel re­cently granted plan­ning ap­proval for the works which in­cluded al­ter­ations to the Bel­mont Av­enue frontage of the ex­ist­ing build­ing.
