Hotel to live again

THE old Railway Hotel, now just a shadow of its former self, may soon live again.

A staff notice to council said a building application licence for the site was expected before the end of the year.

It is understood landowner Joe Scaffidi wants to build another hotel on the site. Currently the site is occupied by the rebuilt facade of the Railway Hotel and little else.

The old hotel was demolished in 1992. Unfortunately, the building’s historic facade which was meant to be kept was also destroyed.

A staff note to council said the impact of the site on the visual amenity had been concerning

council for several years.
