Alexandria Hotel update

There are two new developments.

Because council took longer than 40 days to approve/reject their DA, the developer has the right to not wait and see if council will approve the application – they can instead go to the Land and Environment Court. And they have done so. It’s not clear how this will play out. The Court can overrule Council, but given that the DA appears clearly non-compliant in several areas, most obviously height, it’s not clear what will happen.

AND, an Interim Heritage Order has been issued: http://www.gazette.legislation.nsw.gov.au/so/download.w3p?id=Gazette_2015_2015-63.pdf

This doesn’t guarantee heritage protection for the Pub, but it does allow up to six months for a proper assessment of heritage to take place, which on the face of it, would seem likely to mean that heritage protection is now a real possibility.
