Bega Valley Shire Council has rejected the Development Application for demolition of the Hotel Australasia in Imlay Street, on a number of grounds.  A passionate group of local community members has been working on retaining at least the facade of the historical building which has been part of the streetscape for many years.  For the official report, read Clause 8.2 of the Minutes of the Bega Valley Shire Council meeting on 12th February 2014.
