Minister Mick Gentleman MLA, Minister for Planning and Land Management, has replied to our petition.
It is clear that the Minister shares the community’s frustration about the current situation in which Coombs has a brand new but totally empty shopping centre.
Original Post – 3 Jun 18
A Public petition has been established on Change.org seeking public accountability from the developer of the Coombs local shopping centre. Over 5,800 people now live in Coombs/Wright and the shopping centre, which is a critically important piece of infrastructure for the community, lies empty.
Officially, the developer has until 2019 to finish the project but, in the meantime, the community seeks public accountability for the project and an explanation for the currently empty building.
The petition can also be found by searching for “Coombs Local Shopping” on www.change.org
