across Hindmarsh Drive are thriving.
Phillip's melting pot of niche

by car dealerships, continues to draw
customers despite the blows being
delivered across the road.
Bead Street retail assistant Chandre
Crowther has worked at the Dundas
Court store for more than a decade and

"Once people have a cup of coffee
from [Lava] they will go out of their
way to get one -- same with Addicted

Owner Greg Soulsby said the
destination store had been in Phillip
since the mid-1980s and had a loyal
customer base, in part thanks to long-
standing staff and broader support.
"I think traders here in Phillip
support each other. If I am looking for
new tyres for my car, that sort of thing,
I'll always stop here in Phillip."

had been positive, but a shrinking

She said a number of pedestrian
access points and easy parking made
shopping in Phillip convenient.

The offenders walked away from
the scene, but were stopped a short

PLAN TO REVAMP TOWN
CENTRE IN TUGGERANONG
Plans to encourage development and
revitalise the Tuggeranong town
centre have been tabled in the
Legislative Assembly. Minister for
Planning Mick Gentleman said the
plan contains a range of measures
taken from the 2012 Tuggeranong
Town Centre Master Plan aimed at
giving the town centre a kick start.
"Comprehensive public consultation
undertaken for the master plan has
led to a number of zone changes and
amendments to codes that will
consolidate the existing centre, with
more people living closer to existing
businesses and better use of services
and facilities," Mr Gentleman said.
