Mayor Hubbard just can't seem to get anything right.

Sally Ridge and Adam Parore can demolish their house Freemans Bay thus delivering another humiliating defeat to Mayor Hubbard.

In a written decision, planning commissioners ruled in the couple's favour. They acknowledged the house had heritage value and were unconvinced it was beyond repair but concluded that demolition would have "only minor effects on the streetscape, visual amenity and heritage character of Arthur St and Wood St".

Bugger eh, stick your new heritage rules right up your arse.

The planning commissioners slapped you with this little comment.

The new heritage rules had still to be formally ratified and had "little legal weight" compared to the operative district plan, which allowed the removal of pre-1940 houses within a residential 1 zone.
