RELEASE - DEMOLITION PERMIT IS SELF-INFLICTED VANDALISM

January 31, 2019

SELF-HARMING FED SQUARE MANAGEMENT EAGER TO BULLDOZE ITS OWN BUILDINGS

In a remarkable act of self-harm Federation Square management is seeking a permit to demolish one of its own buildings.

Federation Square management plans to bulldoze the Yarra building and replace it with an Apple superstore.

The permit application to Heritage Victoria was lodged on Wednesday January 30 and gives the public only 14 days to object. 600+ Melburnians have done so in the first 24 hours.

The permit application is a bid to beat a probable Heritage Register listing of Federation Square in April by the Heritage Council.

"There's a word for this strategy," says Tania Davidge President of Citizens for Melbourne, "Vandalism."
