Fighting for Heritage Listing
The Save Our Sirius Foundation believes the Minister for Heritage has not made the necessary and proper considerations on relevant matters in rejecting the Heritage Council's recommendation to list Sirius Apartments on the State Heritage Register.
We will be asking the Environmental Defenders Office to launch a legal action to have the Minister's decision reviewed and annulled. Forcing the Minister and the Government to give due weight to the relevant facts in re-making their decision. We must remember the Heritage Council voted unanimously to recommend Sirius for listing on the State Heritage Register on the grounds of: Aesthetics (exemplar Brutalist Architecture), and History with the Green Bans movement within The Rocks. Minister Mark Speakman rejects the Heritage Council's recommendation, whilst admitting the heritage, said he preferred the money instead. Saying "I am not [heritage] listing it because, whatever its heritage value, even at its highest, that value is greatly outweighed by what would be a huge loss of extra funds from the saleof the site."
