In Bentleigh VIC on “Removal of restrictive...” at 2 Rose Street Bentleigh VIC 3204:

Geoff Tittensor commented

Like many houses in the Bentleigh area, if not all, have a restrictive covenant requiring that only brick dwellings can be constructed. These covenants were conceived in the 1950's when weatherboard was seen as the cheap and nasty option. With the subdivisions taking place today that mean a double storey house is being built, a two storey brick house can be very expensive and unnecessary with modern building materials, such as hebel, a manufactured masonry material.
I cannot understand why the local government has not lobbied the state planning authority to override this outdated and now unnecessary restriction, all it does it add anxiety and unwanted costs to the planning process, which is complicated enough and expensive enough already..
