"Ugly" car park is added to heritage register

Meanwhile, a Heritage Victoria panel will consider whether to add another threatened city building on to the state register.A hearing was held for the Palace Theatre on Friday, while its current owners plan to demolish the century-old building to make way for a luxury W-Hotel.
But the group campaigning to save the popular live music venue already have the odds stacked against it, because Heritage Victoria's executive director has found it does not have state cultural significance as an early theatre, although it is considered locally significant.
Save the Palace Theatre's Rebecca Leslie is frustrated there is no process in place to protect locally significant buildings.
"This is ludicrous,'' she said. "If something is significant shouldn't there then be a due process to review?"

I have been to a couple of shows recently at the Palace, will be sad to see it go.
