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

James Mccallum commented

The short-sightedness of Marrickville council is dumbfounding.

Why are suburbs like Paddington, Newtown and even Redfern desirable places to live? Because they largely retained their heritage buildings, instead of bulldozing them.

Instead, Marrickville approves the demolition of its beautiful buildings, with all the care of a dump-truck driver backing over a gorgeous garden.

So, instead of a legacy for countless future generations, we end up with a measly increase in rates, and invaluable assets for the future dumped in the waste, with barely a moment's thought.

Imagine if Marrickville council has it's way across cities like Paris, London, New York, or countless other cities and towns around thew world...we'd be left with nothing.

People gravitate towards heritage, and that brings the promise of sustainable, permanent value.

Instead, we're heading towards being the eye-sore of the inner west.

Go Marrickville!
