In a notice published in the Friday, September 13 edition of the Mudgee Guardian newspaper, the Heritage Council of NSW has outlined its intention to consider placing the Regent Theatre in Mudgee on the State Heritage Register.
The notice states that the consideration would be in 'acknowledgement of its heritage significance'.
The notice comes less than a month since an amended development application (DA) was placed on exhibition at Mid-Western Regional Council and almost seven months since an Interim Heritage Order was placed on the building.
The new development - if approved in its current form - would turn the Regent Theatre space along with the adjoining space at 33 Short Street into two connected but distinct buildings.
The Mudgee Guardian has reached out to the NSW Heritage Council for further comment.
