On 25 July 2008, the State Government declared the Fitzgibbon Priority Development Area (PDA). And as it is covered by the Fitzgibbon PDA, this proposal with application #DEV2020/1103 was granted approval by EDQ. 
The proposed Fitzgibbon site has been reduced to make way for the planned widening of Beams Road and the Rail Corridor. A business case is currently being developed for the Beams Road railway overpass project.
