Local News Stories The Plans for the New Mt Warning Hotel
Work to Start on Uki Pub
Rebuilding of the Mount Warning Hotel moved one step closer in April after Council approved the owners’ Development Application.
Building is now likely to commence in July once a Construction Certificate has been issued.A Construction Certificate is necessary to ensure that all aspects of the construction are in accordance with the Building Code of Australia.
Spokesperson Des Watson said that a builder has been lined up and is ready to go.Construction is expected to take at least six months weather permitting.A headache for the owners is where to locate a 300,000-litre water tank that will provide adequate water supply in the event of a fire, as required under the Building Code of Australia.
The historic hotel was tragically destroyed by fire in February 2013, one year shy of its centenary.
After the new pub is up and running the owners will turn their attention to Stage Two of the project for seven motel units to be constructed on the western side of the property.
Barry Longland, Kevin Humphries and Thomas George unveil the new recreational facilities and the completion of the upgrades to Clarrie Hall Dam .
A $7.3 MILLION upgrade to Clarrie Hall Dam, which will guarantee the safety of local communities and property downstream of the dam in the event of an extreme flood, was opened on Thursday.
NSW Minister for Natural Resources, Lands and Water Kevin Humphries and Member for Lismore Thomas George opened the upgrade at an official ceremony on site.
Mr Humphries said the major upgrade had increased the spillway’s capacity to ensure the dam could safely pass extreme flood events.
"The upgrade to this dam now means Clarrie Hall Dam can pass floods many times greater than the largest flood on record," Mr Humphries said.
“With Tweed Shire Council responsible for the provision of water services to over 70,000 people, the supply of reliable, affordable and sustainable water to the region is absolutely vital,” Mr George said.
“I am very pleased that through the Clarrie Hall Dam upgrade the NSW Government is continuing its commitment to securing the region’s water supply and protecting downstream communities from the potentially devastating effects of extreme flooding.”
