Plumb's demolition still on cards

AN application to demolish half of the Plumb's Chambers site in Warwick is still being assessed by the State Government.

Site owner the McConaghy Group, which wants to expand Rose City Shoppingworld, has applied for a fresh approval to demolish the older of the two Plumb's buildings after an earlier development permit lapsed due to not being taken up.

The earlier approval to remove the timber building at 82 Fitzroy St was conditional on the McConaghy Group restoring the sandstone building next door on Haig Avenue, which the Group has included in its new application.

The older building stands in the way of a planned truck turning bay.

A spokeswoman for the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection said it was awaiting extra information from the McConaghy Group and once this was received the application, made in July, would be decided within 20 working days.
