I am a local resident and chose to live here because I love the heritage and character of the neighbourhood, including the old lanes and outbuildings. I have one concern, but overall I support this application because the Lydiard St streetscape will be enhanced by the demolition of the c1940s fence which was built in the architectural fashion of the time but it now that it is out of fashion it is simply at odds with the significant heritage of the house and street and the construction of the more appropriate fence will enhance the important historic urban streetscape. The proposed extension is in today's current architectural fashion which is at odds with the Seymour St streetscape ! However, it is at the rear of the significant historic house and it is single storey as is the garage which are both a small portion of that part of the site and Seymour street. A hip or gable roof is preferred (and would not change the floor plan so please consider it ), because it would fit in better with the streetscape. However, overall, the improved front fence, and single storey development is a reasonable compromise.
