It’s about time builders and developers paid a bond before their permits are issued, and also risk having the permits cancelled. Break the rules and you forfeit your bond. Then you have to get a new approval. That will stop this nonsense.

As for the wall being declared unsafe—it’s the oldest excuse in the book when you want something removed so you dont have to hassle of working around it. But they have still failed in their duty to preserve and protect the heritage feature. They can rebuild it of course, brick by brick, after they have done the works that they really want to get do. But it will never be the same.

Hello Cam
I understand that no rules were broken because the façade was assessed by a Structural Engineer as being unsafe. It is unfortunate that the solution was deemed to be demolition, but the public had to be protected.

I do not believe that the applicant can be seen as being advantaged by this outcome given that they are required to re-build the façade.
