It would be an extremely short-sighted decision to allow this shop-front to be destroyed. The reason that companies such as Michael Hill Jewellers are coming to Launceston, is to take advantage of the upturn in the economy. The main reason for the upturn in the economy is the increased amount of tourism in recent years, and the financial benefits that brings. By allowing Launceston's built heritage to be destroyed, you are removing one of the main reasons that tourists come here.
Launceston's heritage buildings are an asset that the current Council has been bequeathed to conserve and protect. It would be short-changing future generations if it allows this heritage to be "developed" at the whim of those wanting to make a quick profit.
