PLEASE CONTACT PLANNING MINISTER MR RICHARD WYNNE'S OFFICE to express your support - he has the power to stop the demolition

e-mail richard.wynne@parliament.vic.gov.au  or phone: (03) 8683 0964 and ask him to intervene.

This is a fully renovated original 1890 Edwardian 3 bedroom brick home in a string of original homes, and it is about to be demolished.

Seymour Road is not in a heritage overlay area, so these homes have no protection. Owners don't even need council approval to demolish, only a builder's permit
There isn't even any plan submitted yet to build anything new on the site. 
The planning laws are hopelessly broken. 

Help stop the demolition of a stately home in Elsternwick of architectural significance to be replaced by more box-like developments. 

We want the minister to step in to allow Heritage Overlays to be passed to preserve this Heritage masterpiece which has historical significance in our suburb.

Melbourne is home to some of Australia’s finest heritage architecture. Too much of this is being lost to developers. High-density living has its place and is being catered for in the inner regions already. This block does not need to be part of that. It should be preserved as a fine example of an Elsternwick HOME.

Gracious period detail adorns the double-fronted home including soaring ceilings, magnificent open fireplaces, and superb verandah.

Limited car parking in this residential area is already an issue and likely to be worse with any development of this site other than a single dwelling.
