Petition to save Heritage Mall lamps

From the Maitland Mercury report:
A petition against the removal of ­replica gas lamps in the Maitland Heritage Mall will be presented to Maitland City Council in protest of a multi-million ­dollar plan to redesign the mall.
More than 200 people have signed the petition calling for council to leave the 41 handmade lamps – estimated to have cost between $6000 and $8000 each at the time of installation in 1988 – and reconsider the proposed plan.
