THE large presence that Bunnings Warehouse has in Coffs Harbour is set to be even bigger.

In the process, a derelict eyesore at South Coffs is to be cleaned up.

A second Bunnings store, this one a bulky goods sales room, is set to be built at the former Allison St industrial area in South Coffs.

An advertised development application for Bunnings is on display at Coffs Harbour City Council until April 7 for the demolition of buildings at the site.

A separate development application is also being advertised for building the second Bunnings store on that site.

The industrial site has recently become a ghost town and many hope that having a second Bunnings store will help revitalise the area that is part of the southern gateway to Coffs Harbour.

It is also believed that plans are in place for the redevelopment of the site to help address the traffic build-ups that regularly frustrate Pacific Hwy drivers at the Cook Dr and North Boambee Rd intersections.

A portion of the site had already been set aside for Roads and Maritime Services works to realign the intersection of Cook Dr, the Pacific Hwy and North Boambee Rd.

The existing Bunnings retail outlet at Englands Rd has long been considered too small to meet local demand.

The new site covers 3.4ha.
