DESPITE delays, a $12-million shopping mall development for Horsham is still on its way.
Gateway Property plans to build a new Horsham shopping precinct including a new Target store, a chain store, seven specialty stores and a kiosk at the corner of Wilson Street and Park Drive.
It was originally due to be completed by 2013.
Horsham Rural City Council chief executive Peter Brown said Gateway Property had experienced issues with its planning permit.
He said he had spoken with Gateway’s Ken Foss.
“I think originally he said he would start construction early this year,” Mr Brown said. “I think it’s taken him longer to organise everything than he thought it would.”
Mr Brown said Mr Foss was checking building costs.
“He’s pulling together all the necessary permits,” he said.
Mr Brown said he expected Mr Foss to make an announcement about the project in the next few weeks.
He said he was unsure when it would be completed.
The project was announced in October last year. At the time Gateway’s town planner Brett Davis, of Davis Planning Solutions, said the development would create more than 92 permanent and part-time jobs.
He said there would be about 270 jobs during the construction phase.
