The Planning Tribunal rejected the claim by ADS for preservation of the hotel on historic grounds but rejected the application by the developer on planning grounds. A new design was proposed. However, the acquisition of adjacent land enabled a design that incorporated and provided for adaptive re-use of the existing building.
A further outcome is that the City of Kingborough is updating its Heritage Register to include 20thC buildings and ADS was pleased to be able to offer advice.

For the last nine months, ADS has been fighting to prevent the demolition of the Taroona Hotel, just outside Hobart, Tasmania. Following a three-day Planning Tribunal hearing, we now await anxiously the decision regarding the fate of the hotel. During the process, ADS received letters of support from other Societies in response to an ICADS alert, and we thank them for their efforts.
