Taroona Hotel, Channel Highway, Taroona (April 2006)

Digital Innovations Preservation, Tasmania

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.TaroonaHotelHobart
