Centre's makeover gets OK

PIALBA Place shopping centre is about to get bigger.

Councillors yesterday approved a staff decision to give Escan P/L a development permit for a material change of use to extend the existing centre in Hervey Bay’s Main Street.

Five stages were approved, including demolishing the building on “lot 2” to create a new car parking area, make room for two new kiosks, relocating the disabled access ramp and eventually building 12 new shops and four kiosks.

Central Road, Tinana is on track for big changes.

Seventeen new rural residential lots from 3000 sqm to 11,133 sqm will be created out of one lot at number 116.

Gilston Road stage two development has been approved, which includes earthworks, water, sewerage, stormwater and road infrastructure.

In Exeter Street, Torquay expect number 129 to turn into 16 residential lots.

The indoor recreation building at 79 Islander Road, Pialba will be able to add a play centre for kiddies one to 12 years.

The indoor playground will have a separate toddler soft play area, a party room and kitchen facilities.

Some 30 children and 10-12 adults will be allowed to be on the premises at any time.

The centre will open 9am to 5pm Tuesday to Saturday.
