Dan Murphy’s set for Sale

AN independent planning panel has recommended a planning scheme amendment, allowing for a Dan Murphy’s liquor shop to be established in Sale, be adopted.

Amendment C79 to the Wellington Planning Scheme sought to rezone land along at the corner of York and Cunningham Sts to make way for the bottle shop.

The report recommended the amendment be adopted, having considered issues regarding traffic and parking, site advertising and stock loading arrangements, together with the location of the site and whether it is appropriate for a bottle shop.

The panel found local traffic impacts were acceptable and that more than sufficient parking arrangements were made within the proposal. Other issues raised were all deemed by the panel to be acceptable.

Councillors will consider the report during their July 2.
