What happens to Mt Buffalo Chalet now?

leave a comment »

The plight of Mt Buffalo Chalet was raised in Parliament twice this week by Nationals Member for Benalla, Bill Sykes.

Dr Sykes weaved the uncertain future of Mt Buffalo Chalet into a debate on Housing affordability and requested that Government immediately extend the lease on the Chalet and reduce energy costs to ensure the long term commercial viability of the Chalet.

Dr Sykes informed Parliament that over 4,000 people had signed a “Save Mt Buffalo Chalet” petition and that the Chalet is an icon of significant economic importance to North East Victoria.

Dr Sykes made the point that the outstanding efforts of CFA/DSE fire fighters (& Mt Buffalo Chalet staff) to save the Chalet from the fires would be wasted if the Bracks Government did not commit to taking action to ensure the long term survival of the Chalet.
