The ink isn’t even dry on the development application approval and the fine dining restaurant development at Scarrabellottis Lookout is up for sale. Surprise surprise… ‘A once in a lifetime opportunity with multiple development options’ according to the glossy brochure and video which was likely prepared before the final approval was given by Council.
It’s on the public record that this development presents lots of issues for the local community. The irony is, those that negotiated with Council will not be around to be held to account for issues they will have created – like inadequate provisions for onsite parking. They have made their development money and now scamper off into the sunset (viewed across towards Mt Chincogan according to the brochure) with the local community and Council left to deal with the mess that will surely ensue, including road safety issues.
