Gregory Nicholls commented

Tearing down This house would be a travesty both for Somerville's History but Victoria & Australia's as a whole, That the house has been allowed to fall into the condition it is a blatant case of demolition by default . You only have to look at the other restored houses in Somerville to see that it is possible for New buildings to built side by side with old on the same block , to put 4 units on the site is just a money hungry grab.
In Tyabb a lovely old house was saved & a new estate built around it. Why could this not happen here ???
Must we the residents of Somerville Lose our History just so even more Units are built , We in Australia lag behind the rest of the developed world in saving our old buildings in the name of progress & Money.
The owner should be made to restore the house & only be allowed to Build 2 Units at the back of the property
