Building demolition appeal returns to tribunal

A group appealing against the demolition of the 10 Murry Street office block in Hobart has disputed a report saying the building has minimal heritage value.

The planning appeals tribunal is hearing objections to the Parliament Square development proposed for the precinct around Parliament House.

The development would involve demolition of the 1960’s office block.
