DEMOLITION APPLICATION notice was erected this morning for the pre 1946 house situated at 6 - 10 Kenilworth Street Sherwood. The residence sits on three 400 m2 lots in two titles. This house was recently vacated by an ederly couple who have lived there since 1946 and if we don't object to its demoiltion then it is another part of Sherwood history that will be gone forever.
Kenilworth Street is a Street which possesses much character with ten out of the thirteen homes in that street pre 1946 and all sited on DCP's. This property is also sited on a DCP and a Demolition Approval should not be granted by the BCC. If it is granted then there is little hope of protecting other pre 1946 Character homes from demolition or removal by developers.
I have attached photos of the property. Objections close on 3rd March 2010 only a period of two weeks notice to residents. You can see the development application number A002721467 on the BCC website at http://www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/masterview/modules/applicationmaster/default.aspx?page=wrapper&key=A002721467
