    You ‘acquired’ the property with specific intentions of removing vegetation in a Vegetation Protection Overlay 3?? Pick a more appropriate block for your rebuild please! I wholeheartedly object to this destruction. The council declared a climate emergency late last year and is part of the Urban Forest Strategy to combat this and its applications like this that contravene its exact intentions. Please rethink your aspirations and design.

    Hello, I just wanted to let you know this house is one of very few special 'Beauy Classics' left in the area. These homes were beautifully designed and cleverly situated on the block to maximize light and outlook, and they can so easily adapted to suit modern life. We bought one 9 years ago and have renovated it to suit our family. I'd be happy to show you what we did if you wanted to take a look? I can also point you in the direction of many more Mid-Century Beaumaris homes that have been renovated to suit modern life. These homes are becoming more and more desirable and fetching high prices when on the market. Much more so than new builds. The long term benefit of renovating far outweighs demolition and rebuild. Please reconsider your plans and I would be more than happy to show you similar properties that have been restored if you were interested? Thanks for your consideration.

    I am really concerned you would purchase this property to build a new home when you knew it was situated in a Vegetation Protection Overlay. A law that is there to protect the Trees and vegetation on the site? This site is covered in vegetation. Are you immuned from the law? Not to mention the iconic MCM home. Why would you purchase this special site to destroy it? It contributes greatly to the Bushy Beaumaris Streetscape. Why residents choose to live here. Many others in the area looked at it, but due to the Trees protection law decided it was not appropriate site for A development. I can't imagine this blatent disrespect for the law will be approved by Council.

    Hello, I echo all the previous comments made. I am deeply saddened by the proposed plans to demolish this mid-century home and the beautiful tea trees on the block. We tried to purchase this home mid-last year at auction as our forever family home to restore and eventually extend to suit our family of four. We fell in love with the bushy coastal vegetation, in particular the large tea trees at the front and back of the block. We love Beaumaris for it's coastal vegetation and mid-century houses, and people who choose to live in Beaumaris need to respect the character and charm that it brings and try not to destroy it. Please re-consider the potential of this mid-century home to become a wonderful family home and the vegetation that is on this block that is so special. Thank you.
