In Launceston TAS on “General Retail and Hire -...” at 80A-88 Charles Street Launceston TAS 7250:

Ross Millar commented

How disappointingly sad!
Irrespective of the finer points of enforceable heritage overlays et al, this is an historic link to retailing architecture of the past.
Simply beautiful, simply irreplaceable, simply what makes Launceston a city for citizens and visitors to marvel at, reminiscence and enjoy.
As recent new settlers to Launceston, we walk around the CBD and are absorbed in the magnificent preserved architecture (unlike our previous Victorian city home).
You have to wonder why the historic shopfront could not have been incorporated in a newer design to produce convenience, but still retain the essence of what inherently represents Launceston.
The CBD needs features and this is and could be promoted as such.
