Mr Llewellyn emphasised that the Willow Court Conservation Special Committee was actively pursuing the use of local contractors for many aspects of the restoration work, and had already used a number of local contractors.
“Expressions of interest for work on the Barracks, Bronte and landscaping surroundings were received by the committee at its June 13th meeting and I’m very pleased to say that a high number of quality submissions were received. We expect to award contracts shortly to prepare the necessary planning and heritage documentation to undertake the major restoration and redevelopment works at the Barracks and Bronte, including full landscaping of the heritage precinct,” Mr Llewellyn said.
"Willow Court is a nationally recognised heritage precinct, of great importance to the region and nation," he said.
