In Eveleigh NSW on “Proposed demolition of the...” at 35 Henderson Road Eveleigh NSW 2015:

Monique Ward commented

I object to the DA D/2015/772 on the following basis:

Heritage Significance of the site:
* The venue has retained original features which are unique in the area. It's frequent use in film and television is evidence of this;
* The facade and the building's lengthy history together with it's ties to the Eveleigh railyards are an important legacy for the area;

Cultural importance of the venue:
* The size of the land / block has enabled large functions for many years;
* The size of the outdoor beer garden facilitates a family / pet friendly environment;

Proposed use puts undue pressure on the area;
* The four storey height would create significant shadows for local residents;
* The parking to apartment ratio is grossly inadequate given existing conditions;
* The lack of shared green space is not sympathetic with the leafy neighbourhood;
* The structure itself is not sympathetic with the surrounding structures;
* The density of the area is already increasing - local housing needs are being met by other emerging developments.
