AN HISTORIC former Bendigo pub could find a new use, with the owner of Park View Hotel hoping to build a cafe on the ground floor.
The proposal is before the City of Greater Bendigo and will be discussed this Wednesday night.
It outlines partially demolishing the heritage building on the corner of View and Barnard streets to allow for a cafe to be built downstairs.
Councillors are advised to approve the proposal.
"The proposal is an appropriate design and sympathetic reuse of
an existing heritage building," the council report states.
"In light of the vehicle parking available in both Barnard and View Streets and the small size of the proposed café there will not be an adverse impact on the amenity of the area."
