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

Glyn Craven commented

This is the first time I have ever made a submission about a DA. However I was shocked when I walked past this original freestanding Federation house in obviously excellent condition on a quiet back street away from traffic corridors to find a Development Application for demolition and construction of apartments posted with only a few days to made a submission.

There have been several developments in our area and it is obvious that over the last 5 years the traffic congestion in the area has significantly worsened, yet Council has no overarching plan of traffic management.

I object to this development due to loss of amenity, inappropriate nature of the development in Glebe St, the loss of yet another freestanding Federation House in excellent condition, and the cumulative impact of this and other developments on traffic and general amenity in the area.

The developer has paid for a heritage statement which has obvious conflicts of interest. The Heritage Statement indicates that the house is in excellent condition with mostly original features then talks up some minor additions as an excuse for demolition. The council should place an interim heritage order on this

The council should place an interim Heritage order to allow independent heritage assessment.
