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

Nicola Perry commented

I absolutely object to this proposal. As urban areas undergo renewal, it's vital to keep the balance between the amenity needs of the population and the diverse cultural heritage of the area, as represented in its buildings and their functions. This is a historic building that allows for people to come together in a way that is different from other places and is special. The Alexandria Hotel is about local people, local community, local jobs and local history. It's an important place and an important structure.

On a more economic note, the preservation of the Alexandria Hotel is vital in maintaining the sort of vibe that attracts people to the area to live, work, play and spend their money. Demolishing it would be demolishing an irreplaceable asset.

The negative effects of approving this development proposal would be much greater, both socially and economically, than any gain yet another block of apartments could possibly bring to the area.
