In Somerville VIC on “The development of four (4)...” at 1146 Frankston Flinders Road, Somerville, VIC:

Maree Angelo commented

Somerville is rapidly losing its history. This house is one of the last few standing remnants of Somerville's past and should be preserved. Sadly as it is not heritage listed it has been allowed to run into disrepair to ease and justify the way for its demolition.
While I understand the need for development and the need for additional lower cost housing there is more suitable land that could be made available for development. The destruction of this historic home with the replacement being multiple units on a main road through the town will have the lasting effect of changing the image and feel of the town.
The semi rural feel of the town will be replaced with an over developed and cramped first image instead of the semi rural feel that the Mornington Shire insists it is fighting for in the area.
