In Brunswick VIC on “Partial demolition of the...” at 133A Hope Street, Brunswick VIC 3056:

Chris Lyons commented

The planning appliction also includes a 5m high tin storage shed and scoreboard located at the park entrance (near the cricket nets). The tin shed will obscure large parts of the view of the heritage grandstand from the street, neighbouring residents and park users. I have been advised that the Council doesn't require a heritage permit for the construction of a 5m high shed (despite the heritage overlay) and the council's heritage advisor did not consider a heritage assessment was necessary. This appearas to be a huge double standard to how council requires assessments for any other works in a heritage area. No community consultation has occured (i live directly across the street, my view of the grandstand will be directly effected. I support the club room redevelopment, but the storage shed should be removed from the tender until a proper options assessment and community consultation has been completed.
