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

Patrice Panagopoulos commented

Randwick Council is very lax when it comes to protecting beautiful heritage homes. So many federation houses in their area have been demolished for ugly box style developments devoid of any architectural merit. This beautiful example of a Federation house exemplifies the period with its sandstone foundations, dark face brick facade and gabled windows, superbly preserved in well landscaped gardens with mature trees. It is also located in a street filled with similarly historical houses, creating a streetscape that should be safeguarded not destroyed. All these houses need Heritage listings placed on them now to protect them from future development. This house especially should be issued an interim Heritage protection order. This house has only a minor tasteful extension and Urbis, as supposedly respected heritage consultants, should be ashamed of themselves to support its demolition and refute that there are any aspects of character that are worth keeping. I hope Randwick Council's own heritage expert rightfully disagrees and this DA is refused.
