Penrith CBD restaurant to be restored after fire

Plans have been lodged to restore a restaurant in the Penrith CBD that was damaged by fire in October.

The Village restaurant has been closed since mid-October after a fire spread through the heritage building.

The fire started at the rear of the restaurant where gas cylinders were stored, before spreading into the roof space of the building.

The planned restoration works are set to cost $837,000 and include demolishing and reconstructing brick walls and reconstructing roof structures, according to a report in The Western Weekender.

Previously known as King Henry’s Court, the heritage-listed building dates back to 1861 and was originally the Penrith Methodist Church.
