As a local resident for over 25 years, I am appalled at this proposal. It took me 18 months to get permits to add an upper rear bedroom to my 2 bedroom Victorian terrace, with so many 'heritage' and build restrictions to accommodate the area, neighbours etc. Here again we see one rule for developers and another for private individual owners. The Flemington/Kensington neighbourhood is culturally diverse and needs its icons to continue to be the great suburb it is. The quiet man is an icon of the neighbourhood and a vital part of the community for locals and visitors. Come down on any Friday for free nibbles after work and try talking to us locals about what we want!
