Part of the problem is many of the Georgian buildings are not as deep as indicated by EML but in fact are one room deep. Myself and a few mates I had a look at a place on Hartstonge street a while back (the beginnings of an insane idea about clubbing together, buying a dump and redoing it) and the building consisted of one room and the stairs all the way up.
I like the suggestion from EML though, we need to make the Georgian buildings viable as places people can live in or frankly they’re done for. We could easily afford to allow significant tax write offs for refurbishments (if we could do it for crap holiday homes up and down the country that lie vacant most of the time) to make them functional as residential family homes.
