RSLWA plans advance

WA war veterans are a step closer to a grand new HQ on St George’s Terrace after putting their plans before Perth council’s planning committee on Tuesday night.

ANZAC house will be demolished to make way for the new eight-storey building, which will be a “one-stop-shop” for all veterans affairs, and include the RSLWA club and offices, function rooms, and a restaurant on the ground floor.

RSLWA has owned 28 St George’s Terrace since the 1930s, but in 1974 surrendered the title to the state government to make way for the law courts on the adjoining block.

But last November premier Colin Barnett gifted the property back in recognition of the Anzac centenary celebrations.
