A mapping error by council meant that an interim heritage overlay was declared invalid, allowing the developers of this property to begin demolishing the structure without penalty. The error was corrected a few days later, but it was too late: the building fabric and historical context of the site has been compromised enough that the proposal for permanent heritage protection has since been abandoned. The building will be demolished, and 10 apartments will be built on the site. Inset shows what the house used to look like.

UPDATE: The house was demolished and the site completely levelled in mid 2012.
