UNDER WAY: Earthworks have started at Paddy’s Hotel for developments including a childcare centre and seniors complex.TRINITY Heights is set for an infrastructure boom thanks to a multi-million dollar development under way at Paddy’s Hotel.
Projects on the drawing board range from a daycare centre to a seniors’ housing complex that will completely transform the former St Patrick’s Sporting Club site.
Excavation work has begun at the site to create new roadways that will facilitate a six-lot subdivision of the land.
Paddy’s Hotel publican Liam O’Hara said several of the lots have already been allocated, with the first of the infrastructure expected to be operational around mid-2017.
“One is going to be the hotel and one is going to be the daycare centre, which is with a company in Sydney,” he said.
The initial development application submitted to Bathurst Regional Council in 2014 included a seniors’ housing development.
The details of the application said it wasto consist of 89 self contained units, of which there would be 10 one-bedroom units, 62 two-bedroom units and 17 three-bedroom units.
There would also be a 1200 square metre gym, featuring a swimming pool.
Mr O’Hara said this development was still on the cards, but it would come after the daycare centre hadbeencompleted.
“There was demand for a daycare centre and demand for a retirement facility,” he said.
The remaining lots will be filled at a later date, with a number of potential options available.
“We can do things like a motel, gym, restaurants and things like that; that’s what the use of it is,” Mr O’Hara said.
“Ifwe find people looking to do something like that we can use those other lots.”
Paddy’s Hotel is situated on Gilmour Street, just a short distance from the Trinity Heights shopping complex.
Mr O’Hara said residents in the Trinity Heights area are lacking in infrastructure, making the developmentsa welcomed addition in time.
“The area is growing pretty quickly, so the more we can get out here the better,” he said.
Mr O’Hara bought the Gilmour Street club and associated sporting fields in 2011afterthe St Patrick’s Sporting Clubwent into receivership with debts of more than $713,000.
The St Pat’sdebts included $148,000 owed to the taxman and $301,000 to Reliance Credit Union.
Mr O’Hara reopened the licensed premises as Paddy’s Hotel and has been working on a grand vision for the rest of the site since.
