COSTCO LAKE MACQUARIE APPROVED
The Regional Planning Panel has approved the $49m plans for Costco to establish its retail warehouse and fuel station on the former Pasminco site near Boolaroo.
This is a real game changer for our area, creating hundreds of jobs at a time when we really need them. It also brings with it enormous opportunity.
I'm very grateful to the State Government for supporting us and stepping in to break the deadlock on the Pasminco site, and also to Dantia (Lake Macquarie council's business development arm) which helped us get Costco over the line.
All going well, Costco is hoping to open the doors before Christmas next year.
