    this development should have never been allowed . if people are given the chance these iconic workers cottages would have been done up an they should be given first option .. how are developers allowed to demolish these beautiful homes with a dodgy pest inpection an engineering report ? and very slyly the demolition may i add.. Where is the protection of these homes gone.
    This is the 6 th home in 2 blocks to disappear from history in the last 18 months. if it carrys on there will be nothing left.
    Stop the demolition!

    Delivered to local councillor Cathy Zeiger. They are yet to respond.

    I wholeheartedly believe that the demolition of the cottages in Denbeigh Street should not have occurred. I actually recently walked through the highset cottage which was demolished and I cannot understand how this demolition can have been allowed. If every old Queenslander in Parramatta Park and Cairns North is subject to the testing that the engineers who compiled the report theoretically relied on, we will have no heritage or historical buildings left.

    The complete lack of community consultation in these matters is disgraceful. I have video footage of the demolition of one of the houses and it is guttung. Denbeigh Street is a character precinct street and demolition of these houses is disturbing. We cannot get our heritage back once destroyed and Cairns’ heritage belongs to all of the community, not just a few developers.
