DIMMEYS WRECKING APPROVED BY HERITAGE VIC with an 11 Storey Tower!

ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER DISGRACE

Heritage Victoria again lets Victoria down as it panders to Maddens development at any price policies and wrecks an Icon - Dimmeys of Richmond. Never forget that Heritage Vic is in Maddens offices - how independent is that?
Is Government in the business of government or just business?
