Will Bunbury Council back Forum expansion?
Will Bunbury Council back Forum expansion?

The Bunbury City Council has backed the controversial $80 million expansion of the Bunbury Forum despite fears it could cause a significant downturn for retailers across the city.

The closed door council vote on Tuesday night, which locked out the Forum’s owner Atlas Point Pty Ltd and the public, was considered the biggest hurdle in the development’s approval process.

The matter will now return to the State Administrative Tribunal on September 7 for what is expected to be the final tick of approval.
