    Defiantly NO to demolishion, Large heritage home with plenty of Character, this needs to stop in our historical town, it is different to demolish a modern 70's building, but to destroy part of the history of Sandgate and Shorncliffe 4017 is unexceptable. Again, why would you destroy such a beautiful home that has propabely been here for over 100 years. History of house should be done before any discission is made, proper renovation is all this homne needs.. not demolishion or subdivission.

    Why demolish a heritage building when there’s a large block right next door earmarked for development. Please don’t whittle away Sandgates character.

  3. J Wood commented

    This house looks too historical to be demolished for no good reason other than development. Sandgate's character MUST NOT be allowed to be destroyed by developers. We can never get these beautiful houses back once they are gone.

  4. Sharon Fry commented

    Disgraceful... please dont demolish a heritage house. It has been in the area for over 100 years. It would demoralize the street scape.

  5. Deborah Price commented

    Why would approve the demolition of a house that is part of the character of Sandgate? Let’s see some sensible decisions about preserving Sandgate’s character. If we don’t start really looking at the impact demolishing character homes and putting multiple buildings in their place as a matter of urgency, Sandgate will lose its appeal. Not to mention impacts of infrastructure and the community as a whole.

    Please consult widely with the community before approving such applications.

    A very concerned resident.

    I would actually just like to reiterate the comment above by Deborah Price. I couldn't say it better. I am deeply concerned about over development and innappropriate development in this historic area.

    I strongly object to the demolition of any old and historic house in Sandgate and the surrounding area. Sandgate is an opportunity to preserve the history of Brisbane and Queensland architecture. Too often the character of a suburb is destroyed with over or inappropriate development. Only after the fact does the community realise what has been lost. Don’t let this happen in Sandgate.

    That is a big “NO” on demolition of any historical properties in Sandgate and Shorncliffe. These houses are the heart of Sandgate and many people come here from other states just to see these legendary Queensland homes as they are now well known for their legacy to Queensland.

  9. Tony Paton commented

    That's a great development, it is good to see that they to keep the front houses in line with the character of the area.

    Good stuff should be more of it.
