A fence that was slated for heritage listing by a City of Launceston council advisory committee has been demolished, despite the development application saying it would not be.
The St George's Square property at East Launceston has an advertised development application to demolish the residence.
"The red brick wall which fronts onto St George's Square will not be removed as part of this application," the application said.
Property owner Kristi Seymour said the parts of the fence that have been removed would be rebuilt, with the bricks being taken off site to be cleaned.
Four of the original pillars have been retained, and an engineer has been engaged to design a new footing plan before repairs are carried. This is to prevent the fence from leaning again.
City of Launceston council is investigating the demolition. General manager Michael Stretton said the council intends to discuss it with the property owner before anymore public statements are made.
The development application to demolish the house closes for comment on August 7.
