The building at 10 Louise Street was recently investigated after Tablelands Regional Council received a customer inquiry about the future of the structure.

Officers commenced an investigation to ascertain the building’s condition, its utilisation and historical significance and deemed it suitable for disposal as it “is unserviceable, operationally inefficient and beyond economic repair”.

Council will first explore market demand for the building’s material before it is demolished.

In an email to council, Atherton Meals on Wheels advised that should TRC proceed in demolishing the building, “it is our intention to lodge an application to expand our existing kitchen building on this site”.
