Su­bi­aco, the City will work with the own­ers to en­sure a smooth and suc­cess­ful open­ing.”

Home Base gen­eral man­ager Gino Premici said Grow­ers Lane was a great ad­di­tion for Home Base, Su­bi­aco and the wider com­mu­nity.

He said the SAT ap­proval was a “win for com­mon sense”.

“SAT agreed with the orig­i­nal pro­posal and coun­cil rec­om­men­da­tion and to spend in ex­cess of $100,000 on legal fees and come to the same de­ci­sion is frus­trat­ing,” he said.

“There needs to be some trans­parency from the City of Su­bi­aco on how much money they spent on legal costs, which I would imag­ine would have been about the same amount that was spent on our side.

“The im­pact on small busi­ness with this whole or­deal has been sub­stan­tial, with the Tran family who have been un­able to op­er­ate and for Home Base for lost rent, and lastly the im­pact on the Su­bi­aco com­mu­nity.”

Ms Hen­der­son said the to­tal cost spent on legal fees by the City was still be­ing cal­cu­lated and was cur­rently un­avail­able.

Ms Tran said she was look­ing for­ward to open­ing the gourmet mar­ket in April, with a fruit and veg mar­ket, a bak­ery, butcher and fish­mon­ger planned for the site.
