Hardimans Hotel

Kensington VIC Australia

SJB Planning provided advice and assistance to the owners of Hardimans Hotel in Macaulay Road, Kensington, in relation to plans to refurbish and expand the existing heritage listed Hotel. The preservation of the heritage significance of the Hotel, whilst simultaneously providing a modern facility for patrons was of paramount importance to the project working group.

The refurbishment works include new bar/dining areas across both floor levels, a first-floor outdoor terrace and a ground floor extension, together with a rejuvenation of the existing building façade. A high standard of works ensured the heritage qualities of the Hotel and the amenity of abutting neighbouring residential properties was retained.

SJB Planning prepared, lodged and managed the planning approvals process, successfully obtaining planning permission for the project through Council. Beyond permission for the refurbishment works, separate planning permission was also sought and granted for the display of advertising signage including the reinstatement of a rotating sky sign.
