City waits on mar­ket de­ci­sion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

THE Metropoli­tan Re­de­vel­op­ment Author­ity will con­sider the devel­op­ment pro­posal for a Coles and Tar­get shop­ping precinct at Subiaco Sta­tion Street Mar­kets this month.

City of Subiaco Mayor Heather Hen­der­son said she hoped the State Gov­ern­ment would soon ap­prove plans for tented week­end mar­kets down Rokeby Road to en­sure “a smoother tran­si­tion for cur­rent Sta­tion Street stall­hold­ers”.

“I ex­pect to hear from the de­part­ments (Trans­port and Main Roads) very early on be­cause the whole project hinges on the out­come of those two gov­ern­ment en­ti­ties,” Mrs Hen­der­son said.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Ian Hill said the City was work­ing on a Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing with Mar­kets on Rokeby or­gan­is­ers Venn Prop­erty Group (VPG).

VPG direc­tor Evan Bri­ers said he was putting to­gether a de­tailed in­for­ma­tion pack.

“We are still seek­ing ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est and work­ing closely with coun­cil to give the de­tails and sign off fi­nan­cially,” Mr Bri­ers said.
