Some beautiful character homes have missed the cut for demolition controls on a heritage list, says Auckland city councillor Glenda Fryer.

She says Aucklanders concerned about keeping the character and heritage properties in some of the city's suburbs should be worried when a list of maps is made public.

Among the anomalies were two neighbouring houses in Epsom Ave - one with demolition controls, the other without - and a large two-storey Victorian villa in Rockwood Place which was also exempt from controls, she said.
