Conservation or demolition?

The Trust and members of the local community have been concerned about the rapid deterioration of two historic weatherboard cottages at 1A and 3 Ryde Rd near the Hunters Hill overpass.

Council has told the Mainstreet Committee that the front verandah of 1 Ryde Road was recently demolished without authority.  Hunters Hill Council promptly took the developer to court the next day and obtained an injunction.

Heritage items like this need to be conserved.

Historic cottages: is this demolition by neglect?

1A Ryde Road, Hunters Hill

At its meeting on 24th May, the Main Street Committee expressed concern about the rapid deterioration of two weatherboard cottages at 1A and 3 Ryde Rd near the Hunters Hill overpass. The doors and/or windows of these cottages have been open, and there is a danger of them collapsing, or catching fire.

Hunters Hill Trust members are concerned about the continued  neglect of these historic cottages, and want to know why they are still unprotected from further deterioration.

What action is the owner and site developer taking to stabilise them?
