The City of Melbourne has received an application for a new medical centre to be built on Franklin St.
The application for 58-64 Franklin St was received on October 7.
Currently, the site is home to a Priceline Supermarket and a post office but the application proposes that it be turned into a medical centre where three practitioners will provide X-ray, pathology and dentistry services.
An on-site pharmacy is also included in the proposed plans.
After viewing the application, CBD News has learned that the application has now been closed and archived due to it not being needed.
“… pursuant to the provisions of the Melbourne Planning Scheme, no planning permit is required for the proposed use. Accordingly, the application has been closed,” read a letter addressed to the applicant, sent from planning officer Adam Birch.
City of Melbourne advised CBD News that the next step would be for the applicant to apply for a building permit before beginning construction.
