The rejuvenation of Clifton’s Imperial Hotel is one step closer today.
The idea is to restore the hotel in keeping with its position of historical significance within the Northern Illawarra and includes signage being painted on the walls in accordance with historic photographs!
Owner The Shellharbour Club has lodged a set of amended plans with Wollongong Council, addressing concerns raised when their original plans were lodged late last year.
The amended plans deal with bushfire concerns, they include the addition of glass balustrades to address noise issues (without taking away from the heritage-style of the proposed renovation), and trees will be used to shelter local residents from the noise on the Northern balconies.
Every effort is being made to maintain the Hotel’s original style.
Unlike Scarborough Hotel, the rear garden will not be used for dining, but it will be accessible, so patrons can enjoy the view and play on the grass. It will also be used for Wedding ceremonies and special occasions.
The amended proposal will be on exhibition until April 21. You can have a look at it HERE
