The Department of Land and Property Services (LAPS) is seeking public comment on plans for an Aldi supermarket at Chisholm. The proposed site for the supermarket is a vacant block of land (Block 7 Section 598) between Benham and Proctor Streets behind the exisiting Chisholm shopping centre. (See map below).
The site is approximately 3,430 square metres, with access off Benham Street and is currently zoned Commercial CZ3 under the Territory Plan. The Territory Plan currently restricts the size of a supermarket on this CZ3 site to less than 300 square metres. A variation to the Territory Plan is required in order to allow for an increase of gross floor area permitted on the site to the 1200 square metres required for the proposed Aldi supermarket.
All comments received will be directed to the developer for consideration as part of any development application and will be subject to further community consultation as part of the approval process.
The proposal will also be considered at the first meeting of 2011 of the Tuggeranong Community Council on Tuesday 1 February 7:30pm upstairs at the Tuggeranong Southern Cross Club.
Should you wish to comment on either the direct sale or the proposed variation to the Territory Plan, please consider posting a comment here, or on LAPS’ website:
