At last night's City of Sydney meeting the Central Element DA for converting the historic art deco building to a boutique hotel was deferred.

Local objections included well-presented cases by Brandon Martignago (chair of the Metro Minerva Theatre Action Group), Andrew Woodhouse, Peter Sheridan and representatives of the Wayside and the Gowrie Gate building.

We are continuing the fight to have the theatre as a theatre!

More news on this as is emerges in the coming days until then, Linda Morris' piece from the Sydney Morning Herald

Supporters of the Metro-Minerva Theatre will step up pressure on the Minns Government to save the Potts Point Art Deco gem after development plans to turn it into a boutique hotel and cabaret venue were delayed.
The City of Sydney council’s independent planning committee on Wednesday night deferred Central Element’s amended plans for a 63-room hotel and Parisian-style cabaret room seating 250 people on the site of the mothballed theatre.
