    A New Era

    The Canopy will be home to a new park with village green and children’s playground, performance stage, restaurant precinct, Coles and Aldi supermarkets and a 500-space underground car park, and is set to be completed in mid-2020.

    Formerly the home to the Rosenthal Avenue car park, the site is centrally located close to the town centre, post office and existing restaurant and shopping precinct.
