REVISED PLANS FOR THE NEW THIRROUL PLAZA
The revised plans for the new Thirroul Plaza, required after directions from Council on points of concern, have been placed on the WCC website. These will be on display via the link below to "View-an-application" (On the site, go to"DA-2020/363" Thirroul and access the "Additional Information" files for the latest updates).
SUBMISSION OF COMMENTS
The Council has stated the following:
“The information will be publicly available until the 30 September and submissions should be provided within that period. In terms of when the cut off of when we would no longer be able to be accept further comments/communications, that would be once Council's assessment is finalised and the report to the Southern Regional Planning Panel published. The timing of this is likely to be at least another couple of months. Any person who has lodged a submission or any comment with Council regarding the development throughout the assessment will be notified of the meeting.”
The DA still describes two levels of basement parking, one level of supermarket, shops and three levels of residential (82 apartments)
Access to underground parking will be via King Steet. There will probably be additional traffic lights at King Street, although there is discussion ongoing regarding the optimum traffic solution. .
