    Is it necessary to destroy the front shop, it is the only remaining historical building in this most visited area. Only the pub and the post office have any appeal, most of the other new buildings are just 'functional' but pretty bland.....
    I'm not opposed to development, but Helensburgh is loosing any esthetical appeal. New building recently built seem to date from the 80 and give the impression of rushed development projects with not a care in the world for the long term, the design, the art, architecture, heritage or landscaping.
    Helensburgh is becoming a functional hub but forget to reflect its very own community and history.

    I do not agree with the demolition. These shops are part of the town and very functional. There isnt a need for more apartments in this exact area. More appartments will be making the historical area look less. Please consider the shop owners as well of 12 walker street.

    This is an unnecessary development and will remove the most visually appealing shop front in the main street of Helensburgh. No more high density dwelling should be approved for this area until a comprehensive and cohesive town plan has been delivered. To do anything less is short-changing the rate payers of the Nothern Illawarra. Town plan - before ANY new major developments.
