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

Christina Redshaw commented

I strongly object to the destruction of these buildings which Council previously identified as having historical importance to the Marrickville area and therefore gave them Heritage protection. Marrickville is in danger of being over-developed with ugly, poor quality 5+ storey developments that are replacing or overshadowing beautiful old buildings and single level family homes. We live, work and spend our money in Marrickville because of it's unique character of which no small part are the buildings that have been preserved and restored through the love and care of residents for well over 100 years. Plesae Councillors, we have elected you to protect our homes and our lovely area, not allow greedy developers to destroy Marrickville. There are some great examples in the area of developments that have managed to preserve and incorporate the old buildings and existing streetscapes. We need our Council to make this a priority in new developments rather than allow the developers to ride rough-shod over the Community wishes and objections.
