Woolworths Cobram is seeking to expand into its adjacent car park to become ‘‘the biggest Woolworths for the Moira Shire area’’.

A Woolworths spokesperson said it would be a $10million investment.

‘‘The proposed redevelopment will see the store increase in size by 1200sqm to approximately a 4200sqm store and will be built to Woolworths’ latest designs,’’ the spokesperson said.

‘‘At this stage we do not have any timelines in place, however, the store will continue to trade throughout any redevelopment and we will keep the community up to date as things progress.’’

At the August Moira Shire Council meeting, councillors applied to gain the authority to approve a planning permit.

‘‘This will have a big impact on Cobram and Cobram CBD as we go forward,’’ Cr Ed Cox said.

Currently the land in question is under the Planning Minister’s authority.

The special authority was granted after legal proceedings between 1996 and 2000, including planning appeals and Supreme Court hearings.
