Panel rejects multi-use development
An application for a a proposed multi-use development on Council Avenue has been rejected by the Metro South-West Joint Development Assessment Panel.
The application for Lot 301 (No. 2-6) Council Avenue included four showrooms, a 24-hour gym, restaurant, a convenience store selling petrol, 108 car-parking bays, 22 bicycle bays and a playground, but was rejected four to one by the panel on Wednesday.
The City of Rockingham did not support the application for several reasons, given its prominent location on the corner of Council Avenue and Read Street, and said it required a minimum three-storey development, not a single-storey with a “faux threestorey facade”.
