The Canberra Southern Cross Yacht Club in Yarralumla is about to set sail on a redevelopment of its lakeside hospitality facilities, lodging a works application for stage 1 with the National Capital Authority.

The club plans to refurbish the ground floor including Snapper, its popular fish and chips outlet, and build a new Pop-Up Kiosk Bar and Gelato Café at one end.

Its plans include external pergolas to rear paved and decking areas and the installation of a new outdoor fireplace, outdoor furniture and shade umbrellas.

A new deck will have an unimpeded view of the lake after a row of five melaleucas is removed and replaced with dryland grasses.

The trees will be replaced by five new melaleucas planted nearby.

New glazed concertina folding doors will secure an elevated dining area.

Other plans include landscaping, new lighting, new waste and gas meter enclosures, and minor alterations to the building facade.

The proposal will expand the ground floor’s gross floor area by 73 square metres but the upper level will be unchanged.

Demolition work will include the removal of the outside temporary marquee structure.

The club restaurant and Snapper and Co have closed for the refurbishments. The restaurant is expected to reopen in early September and Snapper in October.

The plans can be viewed at the NCA’s website and submissions can be made until 5:00 pm, Friday, 9 July.

Who cares. Boycotted the CSCS for a few years now. Average club, average food. Go HELLENIC for a far better feed and variety.

They must have a lot of pull. Even people on Sydney’s upper North Shore who want to remove trees which are blocking the view of the harbour get knocked back by their local councils.

Wasn’t this the Club that was complaining last month about being broke and if someone put planes on the lake it would mean the end of the Club…

    I think Snapper is run by the CSCC. The Yacht Club is another entity.

I hope that they are going to improve the carpark as well, it is not big enough!

    Tony Walters, yes it is lovely both the restaurant and the fish & chips, but the parking is terrible.
