_3 POINT MOTORS, KEW
Collie has provided 3 Point Motors with town planning services over a number of years. Previously, Collie obtained planning permits for 3 Point Motors to undertake a commercial and used car dealership on Heidelberg Road, Fairfield as well as a planning permit for the redevelopment of the dealership at Heidelberg Road, Alphington (which has now been fully constructed).
More recently, Collie has been involved in obtaining an amended planning permit to facilitate the refurbishment of the 3 Point Motors dealership on Denmark Street, Kew.
The original planning permit for the dealership was issued in 1996 and included a condition prohibiting vehicle servicing to be carried out on the site. As a result, after sales vehicle servicing and repairs, identified as an integral part of the dealership operations, had to be undertaken off-site.
The amended planning permit, issued by Boroondara City Council in early 2012, allows for vehicle servicing to occur on the site and includes the provision of a workshop within the building, along with additional customer car parking and valet service.
In addition, the amended planning permit allows for a refurbishment of the dealership inside and out. The facade of the building will be altered to respond to internal design standards required for all Mercedes Benz dealerships and will generally improve the appearance of the building. New signage will add to the facelift that the building will receive.
Along with the provision of vehicle servicing bays in the building, the display floor and staff and customer amenities will also be improved. All in all, the refurbishment of 3 Point Kew will provide a much improved dealership for customers and staff alike.
