On Tuesday 04 December 2018, KCC’s development application to upgrade its Katoomba site was refused by the Sydney Western City Planning Panel.
The application process has involved many professionals who have partnered with KCC and worked tirelessly and diligently to pursue this vision for the convention site.
At the meeting, the panel chairman acknowledged the excellence of the design, and voted for a deferral to allow KCC time to work with local council and Rural Fire Service to amended plans, however the remaining four panel members voted for a refusal. Further details are included here in our full statement.
The KCC board and management are considering its options in light of this decision in consultation with its advisors, and an update will be provided in due course.
KCC would like to thank all of its supporters and those directly involved in the process and planning to date and invites continued prayer for pathways forward and decisions about the best use of the site.
