A SUPERMARKET, medical centre and shops could be on the way under a plan for the Ettamogah village.
Ettamogah Pub owner Leigh O’Brien is behind the development, which is now being promoted by Albury real estate agency First National Bonnici and Associates.
Sales representative Lexley Sewell said the new retail hub was “a great sign for the area”.
“And it’s backed by Albury Council, including at a community meeting held at Table Top a couple of weeks ago,” she said
Mrs Sewell said there were also options for several other retail outlets.
The agency has “in-principle agreements” for the addition of a pharmacy and a medical centre.
It has begun talks with a boutique supermarket chain, a hairdresser, a lolly shop “and a couple of other retail outlets”.
“Planning and environment director Michael Keys from the council told everybody that they were very excited about, that they were happy to back the development,” Mrs Sewell said.
“He said there was a pharmacist and a medical clinic already set to go in there.
“There will be much more added later, but right now they will go into that front section that used to be the tavern.
“Later on it will be extended up further and there will be a lot more shops.”
Mrs Sewell said a lot of what was expected to go into the village centre was in the planning stage.
“But Leigh is aiming at the end of this year,” she said.
“He hasn’t got it set in stone as there’s obviously got to be some readjustments to the critical building.
“As soon as that’s done they will be able to go in.
“We’re just aiming at that timeframe at the moment.”
Mrs Sewell said she would like to hear from anyone interested in either moving an existing business or setting up a new one at the village.
“You could have a business such as a cafe,” she said.
“There’s so much happening out there in terms of residential development, with quite a few lifestyle lots including ones we’ve got next door.
“It all promotes the village concept.”
The agency is seeking people to lease the retail outlets, or buy one of the adjacent nine residential blocks.
