THE Western Australian government remains committed to finding a hotel developer at Albany’s Middleton Beach after a recent expression of interest process yielded no results.

Lands Minister Rita Saffioti said the site will remain available for mixed-use hotel proposals from the private sector but in the interim, LandCorp will be working with the City of Albany on plans to activate the site prior to the eventual development of a new hotel.

“The earlier hotel operator EOI demonstrates there is an appetite to run a hotel at Middleton Beach and I’m hopeful a developer will come on board soon, particularly as the WA economy continues to improve.

“While the hotel site remains undeveloped, LandCorp will work with the City of Albany to develop a strategy to utilise the area until a developer comes forward with development concepts in keeping with the community’s desired outcomes.

“The state government has demonstrated its commitment for more tourism opportunities in Albany by progressing Flinders Road roadworks, identifying hotel operators and committing significant funding towards the Middleton Beach Activity Centre foreshore upgrade,” Saffioti said.
