The Hunters Hill Trust supports Council’s work to preserve the unique character and heritage of Hunters Hill and its conservation areas, and its stand to preserve the cottage at 18 Richmond Crescent Hunters Hill.  You can read the Trust’s detailed comments on the proposed alterations and additions to the cottage that are currently being proposed.

Council has previously rejected an application to demolish this cottage and build a very large new house in its place.  Late last year the Land and Environment Court dismissed an appeal from the owners of 18 Richmond Crescent. Key factors cited in the judgement included the heritage value of the existing cottage.
