In West Perth WA on “Proposed demolition of...” at 47 Cowle Street, West Perth, WA, 6005:

Fiona commented

Demolishing this structurally sound building would degenerate the heritage intergrity of Cowle St. I live around the corner on Carr st, & the demolition of the Victorian house that stood on part of 82 Carr St saddened me immensely. That house did not need to be demolished for the owners to develop as the block is clearly large enough to be sub-divided. I believe the option of sub division should be pushed onto owners that wish to develop their land that has an existing building of heritage value. Protection should not be limited to Heritage listed buildings as every old house on an inner city street brings character & historical integrity to the community as a whole.

There are many including myself who would desire to live in a house like this one, many are willing to pay above market price for it, there is just not enough properties like this readily available on the market & when something like this does comes up, it gets snapped up. One only needs to look at all the character homes for sale in the area that has an Under Offer or Sold sticker on the sign.

For whatever financial gain this project may reap, it will never replace the character this house contributes to the street. Don't let another piece of precious history get lost forever.
