    I've grown up my whole life with this beautiful house the first thing I see when I leave my house and it always has made me smile. Its the most amazing sight and is beloved amongst those on Murray Farm Rd and surrounding streets. The younger kids in the area love the house too and to put it plainly, the demolition of this monument to our community would be a true tragedy and is takes away from the lovely views and attraction of Beecroft. There is such a thing as excessive greed, and the allowance of a demolition of the famous 'Gingerbread House' is Exhibit A of it.

    We need smart development.

    Sydney should have mini CBDs like Epping, Chatswood, and main CBDs like the City, Paramatta, etc. Beecroft is not one of them.

    Even Manhattan doesn’t allow skyscrapers everywhere, they have a much better and smarter urban design.

    It’s an an eye sore. Knock it down and put a dwelling in that is energy efficient and has the space for a modern family to enjoy living in. Hopefully we’ll have three new families to enjoy our wonderful town.

    This is not a good idea, it takes away from the area, it does not have a poitive benefit

    This current development proposal in my opinion is fine. A 2000 m2 block is much too big at this point in time. The building itself has always been out of character with the area and almost anything else will be an improvement.

    This house has all the attributes of a heritage listing and is one of the hallmarks of Beecroft.

    This is a character suburb barely holding on to its charm. Please do not demolish this iconic home that we all know and love! We have lost so many. Surely someone will see its value and buy it to keep its charm and heritage? Please also do not create more homes on an already very busy and can be dangerous road. We don’t need more homes on this road any more. Thank you.
