Two sets of rules?
Dear editor,
Re: Exchange Hotel demolition request.
In spring/summer 2012, Halton Hills Council reasoned that an 1870s Georgian home could be demolished to make room for residential “intensification”.
This stately home was owned by a Town councillor ( www.theifp.ca Sept 10, 2012). Now, council is deciding whether the Hillock family should be encumbered with a “heritage designation” to save a derelict uninhabitable shack (700 sq. ft.) on a small urban property, adjacent to the Georgetown GO station that is also ripe for “intensification”.
If council could hand out a demolition permit to a council member to maximize her property value by demolishing a perfectly sound, habitable, historic brick home to make way for a greater number of townhouses, then the Hillock family should be also be granted the same indulgence to demolish a ramshackle building, that has been derelict and unsuitable for any purpose for the past 15 years.
