Size Matters rallies support

A group of around 150 local residents with concerns about plans for the new supermarket development in Forest Street turned out to a public meeting in Victory Park on Wednesday evening.
The meeting was called by ‘Size Matters’ – a new group formed by local residents which say that any new supermarket should be sized for our town and it’s time for a rethink.
In 2018 Mount Alexander Shire Council and the Minster for Planning approved a permit for a 1,500 square metre supermarket on the site at the corner of Forest and Urquhart Streets.
The developers have subsequently submitted a new application for a 3,800 square metre development which has since been revised to 3,500 square metres – more than double the size of the original proposal.
‘Size Matters’ say there are a number of questions that need to be addressed about the proposal for a new supermarket opposite the Castlemaine Primary School and they are interested in working with the community to explore these issues. See the Mail for the full story.
