Mayor, Gash welcomes commencement date for Vincentia Shopping Centre

Shoalhaven City Council Mayor, Joanna Gash has welcomed news that construction will commence on the $80 million Vincentia Shopping Centre by the end of this year.


Mayor, Gash recently met with representatives from Woolworths who confirmed that they will be calling for tenders on the construction of the complex in the coming months.


The Mayor said the shopping centre, which is set to contain retail stores Woolworths, Aldi and Big W while also allowing space for a Library at a later stage, will provide tremendous benefit to the local area.


“After meeting with representatives from Woolworths I was extremely pleased to receive a commitment on the commencement of onsite works prior to Christmas,” said Clr Gash.


“While a long time coming, this project will provide the area with a much needed boost to local employment and an increase in retail shopping space.


“During the meeting, Woolworths confirmed that they already spent approximately $35 million locally in purchase of the land, studies and approvals as part of the DA process.”


“With construction set to commence this year, Woolworths have stated that they anticipate the facility being open in time for Christmas 2015.”


Mayor Gash said the Woolworths and Aldi supermarkets will be part of Stage One of the project while the commencement of the Big W and further speciality shops will be undertaken in Stage Two.


Stage Three of the project will consist of bulky goods, retail outlets and space for a Library.


The Planning Assessment Commission provided approval for the construction of the Vincentia Shopping Centre last November.
