A development application has been lodged for Emu Hall in Emu Plains by local company Stimson and Baker Planning. The proposal is to convert the existing house into a restaurant and to construct additional buildings on the site to provide for a central kitchen and a function centre to accommodate approximately 260 people. An upgrade to the gardens around the buildings is also planned for Emu Hall.

Stimson and Baker Planning are hoping to get approval for the project very early next year. From there, they anticipate that the redeveloped Emu Hall would be operating in the final quarter of 2017.

“The client is a local resident, who has an obvious passion for introducing this venue to the Penrith area. I have enjoyed working with him on his vision and also with the Council. Their enthusiasm for this project is significant, given the new pedestrian bridge and master planning exercise for all along the Nepean River” said Warwick Stimson, Director of Stimson and Baker Planning.

The local community will benefit from the proposed project, with those wanting to hold a function at a premium venue in a beautiful riverfront setting. Having another iconic restaurant location in Penrith is sure to be welcomed by the community as well. For those walking around the Nepean River, the redevelopment of the site will create a great visual presence on the River for all to enjoy.
