What to do if Council records wrongly record a pre WWII house as built in the 1050s?

Submitted by Dreamer on Mon, 10/10/2016 - 1:38pm

Can anyone provide advice? I have concerns that a house built in 1916 located on the high side of Sherwood in a character street may be either demolished or removed from this character area. There is no development application or any other record of planned building works on the BCC website. Repeated calls to council have been less than helpful, with the same Town Planner repeatedly stating the house was built in the 1950s.

The development plan is shown on BCC's website under A004001329 a 120-unit, 4-storey high-care facility inconsistent with the Neighbourhood Plan and regulations governing heritage precincts.

Many development proposals exeeding limits of current city plan

Submitted by Linda Conrad on Sat, 26/07/2014 - 10:23am

 Although many people may already have received Nicole Johnston's newsletter of 17th July 2014 raising concerns about current development proposals, I thought it would be useful to post (with her permission) material that she had provided in the newsletter that is of serious concern about proposals - all of which exceed allowable limits (see below in italics):
