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

I object, in the strongest of terms, to the Council's intention to demolish these buildings that the Council had considered worthy of preservation and to then change this intended action to attempt to demolish these buildings (one of them a good example of a two storey Italianate villa which is not common typology for the area).

There is enough land to provide a footprint adequate enough for both residential development and the construction of a community hub/library. I doubt that residents of this LGA would agree to the building of the library if it was to wantonly destroy the buildings as is being proposed by Council. Other plans have been submitted that incorporate the buildings on Livingstone Road. This should be a precinct of heritage buildings that are enhanced, respectfully by newer buildings. To destroy our heritage on public land would be a contemptuous action.

It is to be noted that this council's own publications have featured images of these buildings which goes some way to demonstrate the iconic nature of the buildings that have been seen to represent the area.

Please do not approve demolition of these buildings.
