Ex­ten­sion for car deal­er­ship

Stirling Times - - Front Page - Lucy Jarvis

A CAR deal­er­ship in Os­borne Park has re­ceived a two-year ex­ten­sion to build a $16 mil­lion 10-storey show­room and of­fice build­ing.

The Metro North-West De­vel­op­ment Assess­ment Panel re­cently ap­proved the ex­ten­sion for the Barba­gallo Mo­tors site on the cor­ner of Scar­bor­ough Beach Road and Fro­bisher Street.

The panel orig­i­nally ap­proved the plans in July 2016, giv­ing the own­ers two years to sub­stan­tially start re­de­vel­op­ment works be­fore ap­proval would lapse.

How­ever, a re­port said con­struc­tion had not started due to “de­pressed mar­ket con­di­tions” and the own­ers were wait­ing to get a build­ing per­mit from the City of Stir­ling.

The panel agreed to ex­tend the ap­proval to July 11, 2020. Plans for the 4667sq m site re­main the same as those ap­proved in 2016.

The car sales premises will be de­mol­ished and the site re­de­vel­oped into a 10storey mixed use de­vel­op­ment.
