Plans for larger Katoomba RSL

When Katoomba RSL is rebuilt, “it will be significantly bigger”, says CEO Nick Darias.

The club has bought the block behind the RSL at 4 Merriwa St, with the intention to expand a single-storey development into this area when it is rebuilt.

The zoning will need to change at 4 Merriwa St, to allow the club to operate, and Blue Mountains Council will consider whether to approve this at its meeting on September 19.

The club was savaged by fire on February 24, believed to have started with an electrical problem in the roof.
