In Brunswick VIC on “Demolition of a heritage...” at 701 Park Street, Brunswick VIC 3056:

Jane Morgan commented

Objection to demolish a heritage building and its replacement, a stack of shoeboxes. The council is destroying the neighbourhood. They recently approved 6 x 4 storey, poorly designed "townhouses" with 4 heritage overlays next to it. The council is just plain ignoring heritage listings. There needs to be a review of the council's processes, the way they make decisions (fair decisions), and the level of transparency. For an applicant, they are sooooo helpful. For an objector, we are treated like we don't live in this planet. We are given limited information. Information that is vague, unhelpful, and at times, misleading to deter further questions. The council drags their feet to get onto a call, to attend meetings and even responding to emails, then all the sudden the application is granted and the only way we can fight to is to go to VCAT. They rest their hopes on maybe we would go away. It's bias and unfair.
