Plaza plan ap­proved by coun­cil

The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - NEWS -

A DE­VEL­OP­MENT ap­pli­ca­tion for the con­ver­sion of the old New Nor­folk Wool­worths su­per­mar­ket into three smaller shops has been ap­proved by the Der­went Val­ley Coun­cil.

The build­ing on the cor­ner of Charles and Ge­orge streets has been va­cant since Wool­worths moved to its new lo­ca­tion in 2015.

Act­ing on be­half of SFO Prop­erty Pty Ltd, ar­chi­tects Michael Cooper and As­so­ci­ates ap­plied for a par­tial de­mo­li­tion, ex­ten­sions and al­ter­ations, par­tial change of use, and sig­nage at the for­mer su­per­mar­ket.

The “New Nor­folk Plaza” pro­posal, which was ap­proved by coun­cil on Mon­day, in­cludes a Shiploads dis­count store, a new Cel­lar­bra­tions bot­tle shop, and a Zap gym.

Der­went Val­ley Mayor Mar­tyn Evans wel­comed the pro­posal.

“I think it’s great,” Cr Evans said. “[It will bring] more em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties, ob­vi­ously jobs and train­ing for young peo­ple, but [also] ser­vices and things for peo­ple to ac­tu­ally go to.”
