In Marrickville NSW on “To demolish building 8, 9...” at 182-186 Livingstone Road Marrickville NSW 2204:

Ellis Jones commented

I submit my objection to the demolition of heritage houses on the old Marrickville Hospital site. I support a sympathetic re-development of the site into a library and community hub, with plenty of open space, and an element of residential housing.

Marrickville LGA is rapidly losing much of its historic architecture and therefore its inherent character, and one of the reasons many people choose to live here.

It must be possible to design a sensitive plan for the site that incorporates these significant buildings. It is lazy and greedy to argue otherwise.

These 3 buildings were granted high heritage significance by Council, and the recommendation to demolish them and keep a photo 'record' of them is a farce, and a dereliction of council's obligations. The inconsistencies that continually come to light regarding what council will allow a developer to do, and what a resident is allowed to do to their own property, is astonishing and alarming.
