In Oatlands NSW on “Demolition of an existing...” at 15 Ellis Street, Oatlands NSW 2117:

HR commented

Three critical issues here:
First, this property's sales price was significantly below the average for the Oatlands area and this street, due to its heritage listing, which does not allow demolition
Second, the buyer was aware of this limitation and had initally proposed a boarding house, which clearly would be unacceptable to neighbours. This is a clever move which provides a significant advantage to the purchaser.
Finally, council should do all it can to protect the few remaining heritage homes in our area, rather than enabling an obvious opportunistic development.
