The application included upgrading the Captain Stirling Hotel, car parking and landscaping and the demolition of five neighbouring houses.

Further amendments were received in May/June 2020. All submitted plans and support documentation are available for viewing in the document library.

On 21 July 2020, an Application for Review was lodged with the State Administrative Tribunal (SAT) and the matter has been listed for mediation on 13 October 2020.
