Update on the Foodstore Site

The developer of 103 Beach Street met objectors at a meeting last Monday, 4th March 2019. The meeting, sponsored by Council, was designed to allow the developer to respond to concerns raised and to explore possible solutions. The developer is proposing a four-level building comprising a café and supermarket on the ground floor, underground car park and 12 apartments.

The BCNA wants to see this site developed. Concerns raised by attendees at the meeting included the importance of maintaining parking spaces to the north of the building, two car park entrances, retaining a pedestrian entrance to the building from the car park, height, safe pedestrian and cycle use to the east of the building, and toilet facilities. The developers will now finalise their plans for submission to Council. These will be considered by the Statutory Planning Committee before being considered at a full Council meeting. This is unlikely to occur before May 2019.
