Petition to Help save this beautiful theatre from destruction by developers - STOP THE HOTEL DA
Currently there is a proposed development application (DA) to partly demolish the building to construct a hotel which would see the loss of Mudgee's Regent Theatre.
We oppose this development.
We believe that a hotel can be built anywhere and it should not be done to compromise such a significant Art Deco theatre.
Prominent Sydney architect George Newton Kenworthy, completed extensive theatre designs including The Regent Theatre; demonstrating aesthetic characteristics and a high degree of creative achievement in NSW.
The Regent has potential to yield information that will contribute to an understanding of NSW’s cultural history.
Petition to Auckland City Council, The Buchan Group, Kit Parkinson, Ōrākei Local Board, Urban Partners, Jonathan Haydn Staples, Nigel Vincent Staples, Desley Simpson
Mission Bay has Art Deco buildings which cities outside Auckland preserve with great care and details. For example Napier, and Miami Beach are cities with wonderful Art Deco buildings and a large amount of tourism just because of this architecture. The Mission Bay Cinema and DeFontaine buildings are beautiful examples of Art Deco architecture and need to be preserved. Unfortunately Auckland City Council does not deem Art Deco historic like it does Victorian villas.
The unitary plan allows for several story buildings which is great progress for Mission Bay, however the facade of the architecture can be preserved without destroying these fine pieces of architecture.
This petition is to consider a redevelopment that preserves the art deco architecture and keeps the front (facades) of the buildings.
