In Chatswood NSW on “Subdivision of one lot into...” at 9 Centennial Avenue Chatswood NSW 2067.:

Prue Jeffrey commented

I've lived in WCC area for 33 years and I know the house as it used to be. My daughter was best friends with a girl who lived there back then. It is a beautiful very large house with the distinctive style of a bygone age that will not be repeated and is one of the last to survive intact. This is the whole reason for heritage classification - to save distinctive architecture like this. The garden is an integral part of the style of the house and subdivision would destroy the historic visual balance of the property.
I strongly reject the proposal for both the subdivision and the building of a dual-occupancy.

I expect the council to enforce the restoration of the demolition that has taken place.
A house of that size should be sufficient to house an extended family.

I would not object to an internal division of the existing house to provide separate residences within the existing building as long as the garden is also kept intact.
I agree completely with Brian O'Gallagher's objection.
