In Randwick NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 30-32 Glebe Street Randwick NSW 2031:

Tania Craven commented

I object to the demolition of this beautiful large freestanding Federation house in excellent condition with surrounding gardens. This will detract from the character of the area. The cumulative impact of multiple developments in the area will increase traffic congestion, place increasing pressure on schools and hospitals. The heritage report by Urbis, a company that specialises in "heritage" reports for demolition states that there are multiple intact features in the house with a largely intact and beautifully preserved facade. They then recommend demolition because there are have been some additions, despite the fact that very few houses will not have minor changes.

Residents should be aware that current Randwick Council planning laws allow three story development throughout most of Randwick which will eventually transform an area characterised by charming heritage houses and semis into one characterised by 3 story apartment buildings for developer profit.
