Residency is at risk, says heritage group

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

 

The NT Government is planning to call for "Expressions of Interest" from the public for leasing the heritage-listed Residency building, thereby opening up the highly likely possibility it will put to commercial use, such as offices, cafe or restaurant. This should be opposed, writes Domenico Pecorari of Heritage Alice Springs Incorporated.
