    Since this building is classed as significant I object to its demolition.

    It should be retained and worked into the proposed design.

    Thanks P Wijsman

    The application has only just been lodged, so let’s see if the proposal is updated before it is formally advertised.

    I note that the application is an amendment to an existing permit rather than a new proposal for demolition, but I fully understand your concerns about the loss of heritage fabric, and yes this is a building graded ‘significant’ with a strong statement of significance and a site-specific heritage overlay.

    I will keep a close eye on the application.

    Kind regards,

    Rohan Leppert

    I support P Wijsman's objection to the demolition of the property of significance (48-50 Villiers St. North Melbourne). Originally built as two single fronted homes in the 1850’s and used as a dairy, this property has historical and architectural significance to all of Melbourne.
