In Darlington NSW on “Demolition of St Michael's...” at 150 City Road Darlington NSW 2008:

Henare Degan commented

I do not support this application.

The proposed development is is at least twice and often three times the height other buildings in the vicinity. A 14 storey building on this main road will significantly alter the character of the area in a negative way, bringing the dehumanising feel of CBD skyscrapers to Darlington.

I also reject the applicant's assertion that the "physical loss of St Michael’s College building will have no heritage impact". A sympathetic redevelopment of the site, incorporating reuse of the existing building as has been done to a number of other local sites recently, would retain the heritage aspects of the building and be more in keeping with the area.

Thanks for considering my submission.
