Proposed demolitions of 73 and 75 William Street

You may have had a flyer in your letter box about the proposed demolition and replacement of adjoining houses at 73 and 75 William Street. 

Click on each image below to be taken to the real estate listing, to see what is proposed to be destroyed. We understand that the owners of 73 prefer not demolish the home, and would consider not doing so if they were to be provided with on-street parking that they say would be impossible to provide if the current building is retained.

It is concerning to see that the only reason that there has been public notification about the proposed demolition because it is proposed that they be replaced with two storey buildings.  If they were to be replaced with single storey buildings there would be no notification, despite the destruction of houses over 100 years old, in good condition.

Next General Meeting

It’s time to meet again (under safe COVID conditions). Our next general meeting will be on Wednesday, 3rd February 7:30PM at The Don Pyatt Hall.

Come and find more about the new planning system and what it might mean for you and your suburb. Our President, Dr Ian Radbone (who has a background in planning) will give a simplifed explanation of the code and the new database/access system. Come prepared with questions – we’ll also have a council planning officer on hand to assist us.

We’ll also update you on the latest with the George St scramble crossing saga.

See you there! If you’re not already a member please think about signing up on the night. However, all are welcome at these meetings…
