Read the Supreme Court decision – the Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal and found that the Tribunal did not make an error in law.

THIS HAPPENS TO BE  BOROONDARA BUT IT IS TRAGIC FOR ALL OF US WHO HAVE HERITAGE HOUSING.

A wonderful heritage house Burke Road opposite the beginning of Canterbury Road given the green light to be bulldozed and   an ugly 4 storey block of glass and concrete for housing to be built.  The council said VCAT ignored Heritage rules  and the Supreme court has said  SO WHAT.  If you  want to you can read what they actually  did say.  But it means that VCAT can now ignore Heritage Housing.
