Central Leader - - Letters -

Like many other peo­ple, I am sure, I was very con­cerned to read your front page ar­ti­cle Fight for her­itage homes (Cen­tral Leader, July 30).

The pro­posal by Auck­land City Coun­cil that would mean pre-1940s houses could be de­mol­ished with­out con­sent should not come into ef­fect.

Build­ings like Al­ber­ton House and many oth­ers with sim­i­lar, and in cer­tain cases more im­por­tant his­tor­i­cal fea­tures, have to be pro­tected to pre­serve and main­tain their unique char­ac­ter and pre­vent even more of New Zealand’s his­toric icons be­ing taken away for­ever.

All his­toric so­ci­eties need to get as much sup­port as pos­si­ble to ex­ert pres­sure on Auck­land City Coun­cil to do a se­ri­ous re­think on this very im­por­tant is­sue. KEN BRAD­DON Block­house Bay
