Mar­ket in limbo

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

GROW­ERS Lane food mar­ket is await­ing a de­ci­sion on whether it will be able to open at Home Base in Su­bi­aco af­ter be­ing knocked back by the City of Su­bi­aco twice.

Pro­po­nents of the mar­ket Diep Tran and Home Base gen­eral man­ager Gino Premici un­der­went a three-day trial with the State Ad­min­is­tra­tive Tri­bunal last week, hop­ing to fight the de­ci­sion by the coun­cil.

Coun­cil­lors were given the op­por­tu­nity by the SAT in June to re­con­sider an ap­pli­ca­tion for the mar­ket, but voted against the ap­pli­ca­tion 64, de­spite large com­mu­nity sup­port.

Ms Tran said she did not un­der­stand why the coun­cil did not ap­prove the ap­pli­ca­tion at the June coun­cil meet­ing.

“I am pos­i­tive SAT will ap­prove this. We’ve gone out of our way and sat­is­fied all of the cri­te­ria and the re­ports and coun­cil of­fices have rec­om­mended that it be ap­proved,” she said.
