Planning history

In December 2018, the City of Port Phillip refused an application for the demolition of the existing dwelling to construct a new double storey dwelling on heritage grounds. The decision was appealed to VCAT.

The VCAT member argued that the dwelling had been so significantly modified it had lost its heritage significance.

In 1998 a lightweight structure had been added upstairs and some renovations made downstairs. The architect was Lucinda McLean at NMBW architects. See Garden City House.
