Plans to transform the former shopping club into a business center have taken a big step forward, with the green light given for the once popular club to be used as offices. The Wagga RSL Club’s application to add office space as a permitted use for the Gurwood Street building was unanimously approved by city councilors on Monday. The move paves the way for ambitious plans to lease the former club as office space for local businesses. IN OTHER NEWS: Wagga RSL chief executive Andrew Bell told the Daily Advertiser last week that the decision to turn the club into offices came after several local businesses inquired about the site. “We’ve had representations from people wanting to rent the premises, which is fantastic,” he said. “We don’t want to see the building go to waste, we don’t want to see the location go to waste, so we’re trying to do our best for the area.” The Commercial Club was permanently closed at the end of 2020 due to years of financial loss and for the past year has been leased by Wagga Public School as a day care facility after the school. Mr Bell has previously said the building is the ideal location for all businesses due to the high volume of parking available. ‘It’s just about bringing the premises up to standard for a quality finish that businesses will appreciate – we are looking at refurbishing the premises to their standards,’ he said. The RSL club hope to complete the renovations and start renting the building by the end of this year. Our reporters work hard to provide local, up-to-date news to the community.
