In Artarmon NSW on “Demolition of existing...” at 30 Muttama Road Artarmon NSW 2064.:

Alan Carruthers commented

When my wife and I moved to Stewart Street in 1988, our house was in similar distress. We loved it, though and through 3 renovations over about 15 years, we restored, enlarged and improved it all in the heritage style suitable for our area, the Artarmon Conservation Zone..
This house is an important part of the Artarmon Conservation Zone.
Should this development be allowed, it is the thin end of the wedge, and more owners will come along and try to do the same.
These heritage areas are so important, because they preserve what we have as established and historical residential precincts, and we have very little left to preserve in Sydney, with more and more being bulldozed everywhere.
The house may need work but it is easily fixable and that should be the solution, not a poorly-built new house that will downgrade the area.
