Major shopping centre redevelopment is on the cards

By Kevin Kelly

Retail opportunities for anyone living in real estate in Eaton could soon get even better, as plans for a redevelopment of the Plaza Shopping Centre become a step closer. The City of Bunbury announced that the rezoning of land surrounding the precinct has been given the green light, meaning it can now be used for mixed business as opposed to residential purposes.

Mayor of Bunbury Gary Brennan explained that the benefits of this new project would be far reaching.

Among the highlights of the redeveloped shopping centre will be a Woolworths supermarket, as well as a variety of local businesses. What's more, visitors will have access to improved car parking facilities.

There are also plans for a six-storey, mixed-use development at Koombana North, which would bring further benefits and visitors to the Bunbury region.

"A development such as this will help to reinvigorate tourism along Ocean Drive and when coupled with the other significant applications before council, it shows Bunbury is moving ahead and there is a real positivity surrounding the city," Mr Brennan commented.

Other key projects coming to Bunbury

These are just a sample of some of the projects coming to Bunbury over the next two years, as the city also has other exciting developments in the pipeline. The local council hopes to create a cultural and civic precinct within the CBD, which would be visually in-keeping with the existing buildings.

Plans are likewise in place for Bunbury to become the Most Accessible Regional City in Australia by 2020, which would also bring advantages to residents of property in Eaton.

Furthermore, the City of Bunbury is focusing on the construction of the Department of Parks and Wildlife headquarters, as well as the city's waterfront and water playground.
