In Brunswick East VIC on “Demolition of existing...” at 495-497 Lygon Street, Brunswick East VIC 3057:

Mathew commented

The proposed demolition and development on this site (495-497 Lygon Street) conflicts with existing guidelines and heritage reports.

This location is within Precinct A of the Brunswick Structure Plan, which permits a maximum 5 storey/18 meter building height. This would be okay, if the address in question wasn't located within a heritage overlay (which it is - HO435).

I appreciate that Moreland City Council must approve a planning permit to partially or wholly demolish a building within a heritage overlay, which is what's proposed. However, the area in question is of local historical and aesthetic significance, and would be blighted by this building.
