Amended plan for bottleshop development

The bottleshop development site next door to the recently
opened Shiploads store in New Norfolk.
THE firm developing the old New Norfolk Woolworths site into three separate shopfronts has lodged a new development application to cover a drive-through and roofed area that were not included in the original proposals.

The new development application, which is now open for public comment, shows that Zap Fitness is still named as the business expected to occupy the tenancy on the eastern (Charles St) side of the building, next door to the Shiploads store that opened just over a fortnight ago.

However, the "Cellarbrations" branding has disappeared from the proposed bottleshop illustrated on the western end of the building and social media speculation is that the 9/11 Bottleshop chain will be the new operator.

The original development application, approved early this year, included an extension to the building to accommodate the third tenancy, but when excavations started several months ago, it looked like a drive-through was also being dug, outside the footprint of the extended building.

This has now been addressed in the new development application, lodged by Michael Cooper and Associates on behalf of Sypkes Securities Pty Ltd, with the council asked to approve a new vehicular access off George St, and a canopy over the new driveway. The one-way thoroughfare is parallel to the old Woolworths loading bay, which is now being used by Shiploads. One on-street parking space will removed to allow for the new entrance.

The work is valued at $195,000 and the application says that the bottleshop will have two full-time staff and two part-time, and will be open from 10am-9pm from Thursday to Saturday, and 10am-8pm from Sunday to Wednesday.

The full application is on public display at the Derwent Valley Council Chambers until November 1, during which time written comments may be sent to the council's general manager. The plans are also available on the council website.
