PLANS for stage one of an extensive redevelopment at Tremain’s Mill have been lodged with Bathurst Regional Council.

The development application (DA) shows the $600,000 plans are for works along the Keppel Street side of the site which will include landscaping, retail tenancies, changes to the Victoria Stores building and new amenities.

An additional DA for further works at the site is expected to be lodged soon.

New retail spaces will soon feature

RETAILERS in stage one of the redeveloped Tremain’s Mill will be open by the end of this year.

The expansive 8522 square metres site was purchased almost three years ago by Stephen and Glenda Birrell.

Since then, Mr Birrell has worked with a range of heritage experts across the country in order to develop plans for the site’s use while also preserving its history. Read more.

Bathurst’s milling museum puts out a call for exhibits

BATHURST’S soon-to-be established Australian Milling Museum (AMM) is calling on farming families and communities across Australia to dig through their sheds for their own little piece of history.

The historic Tremain’s Mill is set to become the world’s first milling museum and will not only celebrate local flour milling history, but that of the nation.

Tremain’s Mill owner Stephen Birrell, who purchased the property in 2015, has grand plans for the site to become a new hub for Bathurst. Read more.
