Melanka project not quite hot to trot

 

Cold water was poured on the idea that construction would go ahead on the Melanka site as soon as mid-year in the Town Council meeting last night.

The Centralian Advocate ran a front-age story on March 6, quoting  real estate agent Doug Fraser, that the plans have been down-sized and the owners hope to start selling "off the plan" in June with building to begin soon afterwards.

Greg Buxton, council's Director of Technical Services, in response to an enquiry from Alderman Eli Melky, said if the plans have been changed by more than 10% the developers may be required to make new submissions to the Development Consent Authority (DCA).

Mr Fraser, the manager of L J Hooker, says: "The owners have had discussions with the Town Planning Authority and have received a positive response.

"Obviously the project needs to be approved by the DCA with council having their input. We would hope that council would not unduly delay the project." KIERAN FINNANE reports. PICTURED: A drawing of the complex as it was planned originally.
