PLANS for a $40 million shopping centre in Butler will be on the North West Metropolitan Development Assessment Panel’s agenda this afternoon.

The five-person panel will meet at the at the Wanneroo Civic Centre to consider plans for the Brighton Marketplace on a Woolworths-owned property.

The plans were submitted to the City of Wanneroo on July 15 last year and the shopping centre at 150 Camborne Parkway was widely advertised to open in 2014.

But in March, a Woolworths spokeswoman told the Times construction of the shopping centre would take about 12 months, so it would not open this year.

According to the agenda for the July 15 meeting, plans for the 7.95ha site include a shopping centre with a town square, main street, liquor store, restaurant and other commercial and retail tenancies.

It said the shopping centre would be on the eastern side of the site, opposite Butler train station, with the main street to connect Butler Boulevard with Clipstone Parkway, and the town centre west of that.

A 1051-bay carpark will occupy most of the western portion of the site, with a Dan Murphy’s liquor store and a restaurant along Camborne Parkway.

The meeting will start at 3pm and the assessment panel will also consider plans for another Butler development, which includes a medical centre, tavern and showrooms at 40 Butler Boulevard.
