Nearly 40 representations against a St Georges Square house being demolished were received by the City of Launceston council.
Concerns about the property, at 14-16 St Georges Square, were first raised when a fence was demolished last month. The fence was not heritage listed, but the area is of historical significance.
The council is recommended to approve the development application to demolish the house, if a number of conditions are met.
Prior to the house being demolished, the brick wall is to be reconstructed, a vegetation management plan met, and required tree protection installed.
The council agenda said the wall would have to be reinstate within a relatively short period, with two months listed as an example.
"The streetscape at this end of St Georges Square is largely framed or influenced by the substantial brick wall, being remnants of the original wall enclosing the early Fairview estate," the council agenda said.
"The recent partial demolition of the wall to facilitate its repair has left a dramatic hole in the streetscape which is likely to be exacerbated by the demolition of the dwelling if undertaken prior to the reconstruction of the wall."
The neighbouring heritage-listed property, Torkington, has two sequoia trees on it. Nearly 80 per cent of the representors raised concerns about the trees' roots being damaged during the demolition.
The development application was advertised for an extended period of time due to the "heightened public interest" after the wall was demolished.
More than 70 per cent of representors raised concerns about the fence being demolished, especially about an excavator being used, with the council saying there was "apparent disregard" for the conservation of bricks.
"The seeming disregard was highlighted to reinforce the asserted need for detailed plans and supervision to protect the adjoining sequoia trees," the agenda said.
The council said the demolition of the fence had altered the landscape.
The owners of the trees have provided an arborists report highlighting the real threat to the health and well-being of these two trees in the event of rash or careless demolition of the existing dwelling.
"Without question, the roots of these trees extend into the subject property and are, in all likelihood, against the foundations of the building proposed to be demolished," the council said.
The trees are about 150 years old.
The council will vote on the recommendation at Thursday's meeting. It starts at 1pm.
