After years of community campaigning, Telstra has finally agreed to the demolition of the front portion ofthe ugly Telephone Exchange building on Darling Street, provided Leichhardt Council pays for the work.
This will become a public park and will also reveal the heritage façade of the historic Balmain Post Office.
The former Greens-led Council allocated $320,000 to implement this plan however the current Labor/LiberalCouncil has slashed the budget and made the project impossible.
This important project is supported by the Balmain Association, the Balmain Residents Precinct Committee,Council’s Heritage Advisory Committee and the Greens.
Tell Leichhardt Council that you want to restore the heritage heart of Balmain.
