A $30 million Bunnings development proposed for five large blocks in Kembla Grange will be reviewed by the regional planning authority.
In March, Bunnings Properties lodged plans with Wollongong City Council to demolish existing structures at the Northcliffe Drive and Canterbury Road site and build a 12,000 square metre hardware and supplies store with parking for 455 cars on the ground level of the building.
The plans also include a 2000 square metre “pad site” which will make way for a future development.
According to the application, the development will comply with all council controls except for height, with some parts of the building exceeding the 11 metre limit. Entry and exits to the store would be built from Canterbury Road and Northcliffe Drive.
The Joint Regional Planning Panel will decide whether to approve the proposal as it has a capital investment value of more than $20 million.
