Goolwa Chart Room Development
The Chart Room development is a project with an objective of providing the first ‘pop up’ venue at Goolwa by restoring and repurposing the building into usable space that will accommodate a wide range of uses and support the existing demand from small businesses. The repurposed building will attract young entrepreneurs, existing and new small business to connect with customers, generate public interest and create brand awareness for their product and services.
Benefits of developing this site include reactivation of an unused state heritage building, supporting new and existing business growth in Goolwa, increased growth in the region's tourism industry and increasing visitor knowledge and appreciation of the historical significance of the township.
Works will include repainting of walls, new DDA compliant access, upgrade of existing electrical infrastructure with new air conditioning, and construction of an external hardstand.
Project is due for onsite commencement early February 2021 and programmed for completion late March 2021.
