Noranda resident calls for review of pedestrian flow at Galleria Shopping Centre after fire

A NORANDA resident asked for a copy of an independent review on the pedestrian flow around pop-up kiosks in the instance of a fire at Galleria Shopping Centre during question time at last night’s council meeting.

Last month, the City of Bayswater authorised an independent review of the pedestrian flow during a fire after the State Administrative Tribunal invited the City to reconsider its refusal of an application from centre owners Federation Manager Ltd and Perron Investments Pty Ltd to install more kiosks between Kmart and Coles through to Woolworths and Target.

Centre owners Federation Manager Ltd and Perron Investments Pty Ltd applied to install more kiosks between Kmart and Coles through to Woolworths and Target in 2015.

Bayswater refused retrospective approval for the kiosks in February, but the State Administrative Tribunal invited the council to reconsider its decision

Noranda resident Harry Bouzidis said he wanted a copy of the review as soon as possible because there was a “narrow window” to respond to the review if it was not made public before council considered it.

Planning and development services director Des Abel said the review would be attached to the agendas for the September committee meeting.

“(The review) needs to be out into context,” he said.

“The agenda will be available for a week before the meeting.”

Mayor Barry McKenna put Mr Bouzidis’ request on notice and agreed to send a response.
