The UPSC will decide whether to:

  • Adopt the Heritage Citation for 452 Barkers Road, Hawthorn East.
  • Commence the formal planning scheme amendment process to apply the Heritage Overlay to 452 Barkers Road, Hawthorn East.
  • Defer consideration of the draft heritage citation until further work is undertaken.

Consideration by Council

Council officers will review the feedback received and prepare a report for consideration by the Urban Planning Special Committee (UPSC). 

The UPSC will decide whether to:

  • adopt the heritage citation
  • commence the formal planning scheme amendment process to apply the Heritage Overlay to all or some of the properties identified in the draft study
  • defer consideration of the draft heritage citation until further work is undertaken
  • abandon the heritage citation and not proceed to a planning scheme amendment.

Affected and adjoining property owners/occupiers and anyone who provided Council with feedback as part of the preliminary consultation process will have the opportunity to address the UPSC in support of their feedback. 

Note that the draft citation has not been adopted by Council and does not carry any statutory weight. However, Council may use the draft study recommendations to inform its discussions with planning permit applicants in relation to properties identified for heritage protection.

In order for the heritage citation to have statutory weight, affected properties need to be included in the Heritage Overlay under the Boroondara Planning Scheme.
