THE Metro North-West Joint Development Assessment Panel has approved an alfresco dining precinct and playground at The Square Mirrabooka.

Panel members unanimously supported applicant Element’s proposal for an alfresco dining precinct, upgrades to the existing food court and the rejuvenation of entry five with a new facade at this morning’s meeting.

The development, worth $3.2 million, also includes minor modifications to car parking and access which results in a loss of 16 parking bays.

Noisy construction work outside the period of 7am to 7pm, Monday to Saturday and at any time on Sundays and public holidays will not be permitted unless a noise management plan had been approved by the City of Stirling.

Element planning consultant Lewis Shugar, who addressed the panel on behalf of owner Perron Investments Pty Ltd, said the development would give customers more sophisticated dining options and amenity.

Mr Shugar said the owners looked forward to continue working on the project with the City.

Panel member and Stirling councillor David Boothman said it was good to see the centre extend its dining options, as there were currently only takeaway shops and no cafes that open for extended hours.

Fellow member Cr Giovanni Italiano said there was enough parking bays at the centre.
