David Francis, updates on the redevelopment of GM H Pagewood by Meriton

Recently the GMH Pagewood site had MERITON "shade cloth" around the fences of the southern section of the site. This is now completely demolished & leveled to approximately where the 'Boiler house' stood on Bunnerong Rd. Over Christmas I observed the Shade cloth now surrounds the entire site from Westfield drive to the northern boundary in Heffron Rd

 So ...That appears to be it!

  I contacted the Council & Was surprised to learn the Front Tower & buildings are not heritage listed.

 Pagewood was opened in 1940 by Prime minister, R.G Menzies & MD, Sir Laurence Hartnett. GM-H were already assembling, among others, CKD Chevrolet and Buick, as well as Vauxhall for domestic use before moving onto War vehicles & Mosquito plane. See Trove

Also find attached still pictures taken on the day by famous photographer Mr Sam Hood

 The local Botany Bay councillors & politicians have been asked to consider the importance of the

front buildings & towers and attempt to have Meriton at least preserve them. This is where history was made. It would be a shame to lose them.
