148 Brook Street Coogee once more under threat of demolition by developers – 23rd January 2019

UPDATE – The Randwick Heritage Action Group has now been formed by residents. It wants to save Coogee’s heritage buildings and extend the Dudley Street Heritage Conservation Area. Please consider signing their petition.

Greens Councillor and candidate for Coogee Lindsay Shurey is  fighting to preserve the fine old homes of Coogee from demolition. She is seen here at the demolition site of a much loved home in Dudley Street.

Residents who value heritage protection for Coogee’s find old homes have until the 31st of January to make a submission for or against the demolition of 148 Brook Street.

A Development Application (Ref Number: DA/944/2018) has been lodged with Randwick City Council to demolish 148 Brook Street Coogee.
148 Brook Street is currently being assessed on its heritage value by the Council.  An attempt was made late last year to demolish it under complying development provisions that allow applicants to bypass Council involvement.
That attempt was blocked by residents contacting Council which intervened to place an Interim Heritage Order (IHO) on the dwelling.
But the applicant is now making a fresh attempt by submitting a formal Development Application to the Council. Here is a link to the proposal as it is listed on Randwick City Council’s online DA tracking site. https://planning.randwick.nsw.gov.au/Pages/XC.Track.Advanced/SearchApplication.aspx?id=636686
A submission can be lodged at council@randwick.nsw.gov.au.
