20 November 2014: Council approves motel development  Printer Friendly

The Council resolved on 12 November to give its intention to approve the planning permit for a 17 unit motel in Benalla.

The value of the construction is expected to be more than $1 million and will result in new job opportunities during the construction and subsequent operation of the motel.

“Benalla Rural City is a very popular tourism and events destination, and we have needed additional short term accommodation for a long time,” said Mayor Cr Justin King following the Council’s decision.

“We are very happy to be approving this development especially ahead of the World Gliding Championships in 2017,” he said.

“It is better for our visitors if they are able to get accommodation right here where they are attending events and attractions, and that has flow on benefits for our business, hospitality and entertainment operators as well.”

The Council heard from 11 people who raised concerns about the site’s suitability around traffic, drainage and sewage from the development, and has approved the planning permit subject to extensive conditions being met.

“After exhaustive discussions with both the concerned residents, state agencies and the developer, the Council is confident that these conditions can be met, and that our rural city will benefit from having this additional accommodation provider,” Cr King said.
