I’m not entirely dismayed about the Scarrabelottis Lookout becoming the site of a deluxe restaurant, because I can imagine how pleasant it would be to have a meal with such wonderful views all around.
However, I am a bit worried that I might never get to eat there, because it may become a function centre for deluxe weddings. This happened to my beloved Fig Tree Restaurant here in Ewingsdale, another high-class restaurant with great views. It became almost impossible to eat there, because it was nearly always booked out by a wedding celebration. Then it burned down.
I suggest the Council try to make some provision that the restaurant really will be for the general public, as indeed the view was intended to be.
