“It would mean people with disabilities and their carers and families could stay in town longer and go shopping or go to the club and have lunch. “The businesses will benefit.”

Acting mayor Helen Tickle, said the hub would make a huge difference, once established.

“I want to stress that we are very keen to progress the project and work with the project team and other stakeholders,” she said.

“We do have to consider any development in relation to the overall strategic plan for the CBD.”
