Gumly Gumly’s Allonville Motel will spend almost 280,000 to repair 10 units that were damaged by fire back in May.
The motel’s plans were revealed in a development application to Waqgga City Council, which was approved earlier this month.
Neighbours have ready been notified.
The hotels owner did not respond to a request for comment, but The Daily Advertiser understands that work to restore the units has begun.
“This application is for works to the Allonville Motel building that was damaged by fire,” a council report on the development application stated.
“The works are to the southern most building that contains 10 units and will be for the replacement of the roof structure.”
Police, ambulance, the Rural Fire Service and Fire and Rescue NSW were called to the motel on the Sturt Highway earlier this year.
The motel’s occupants were evacuated and no one was injured.
State Environmental Planning Policies were not invoked as the works would “simply to replace a damaged roof”.
