Kmart and a full-line Bunnings are officially headed for Warragul following approval of a planning application for the 25,240 square metre retail precinct development.
The retail precinct, located on the corner of Queen Street and Hazel Drive, will also include a Kmart Tyre and Auto and six smaller retail spaces – tenants yet to be determined. Plans also include provisions for 627 car parking spaces.
The application was approved by Council’s planning department under the relevant delegation following the successful rezoning of the land by the Victorian Government earlier in August 2018. A permit has been issued to the developer, Troon Group Pty Ltd.
The development aims to provide more diverse shopping options for the local community that complement existing retailers in the Warragul CBD area and surrounds.
Construction will soon commence with completion expected towards the end of 2019.
