In East Launceston TAS on “Residential - Demolish...” at 14-16 St Georges Square East Launceston TAS 7250:

Marie Osborne commented

Re DA0115/2019: I wish to express my concern that yet another piece of Launceston's beautiful architectural history is deemed not viable. I am also deeply concerned that the correct image of the 'fence' that is to be demolished and replaced is not contained in the Planning Alert. I am quite sure that if residents realised it was in fact the beautiful 150 year old red, brick wall that was to be removed, rather than the unattractive modern fence pictured, there may be a few more complaints to this development application. The fence pictured is actually in Scott Street, not St George's Square. Whilst there is no doubt a place for modern design, it should not be at the expense of what is intrinsically 'Launceston', and this unfortunately, is becoming all too common.
