A new restaurant in Orange has gained DA approval for a $500,000 fit out.

The Orange News Examiner reveaIed earlier this year that pizza and pasta restaurant Pellegrini’s Italian would be opening at the Summer Centre as part of a major refurbishment currently underway.

Council papers show the development application for the fit out was approved by council staff in May.

It will join other new tenants at the centre including McCarthy’s Pharmacy, which is moving from its long-time home in Lords Place.

That relocation is due to occur in the next few months.

The approval for Pellegrini’s was part of nearly $9 million worth of building developments approved for Orange in May by council staff.

Since then a further $4.5 million worth of works have also been approved.

BMPS 88, which owns the Summer Centre, gained approval for $450,000 worth of works on properties adjoining the site in Hill Street and Summer Street.

They include demolishing part of the rear of a dwelling and shed, dwelling alterations and additions, and a carport.

John Davis Motors is taking over the former Holden dealership site on the corner of Bathurst Road and Endsleigh Avenue, and just under $1 million has been approved to be spent on the site for alterations and additions, including business identification signs, for the car dealership.

Meanwhile work to turn Orange’s former ambulance station next to the state government DPIE offices on the corner of Anson and Prince streets into a dental surgery has also been given the green light.

The approved works are set to cost $750,000.
