Council has engaged Context Pty Ltd to prepare a heritage citation for the property at 452 Barkers Road, Hawthorn East.
The draft citation has now been completed and has identified the property to be of local heritage significance.
The draft citation recommends the property for inclusion in the Heritage Overlay under the Boroondara Planning Scheme.
Current status (March 2018)
We are seeking feedback on the draft heritage citation before deciding whether to commence the formal planning scheme amendment process to apply the Heritage Overlay to the property.
Any feedback on the draft study must be made in writing by Friday 13 April 2018.
You can lodge your feedback the following ways:
- Using the online form
- Email: [email protected]
- Mail: Boroondara City Council Strategic Planning Department, Private Bag 1, CAMBERWELL VIC 3124
Please note that all submissions will be treated as public documents and may be viewed by third parties. Carefully read the privacy statement before completing the online submission form.
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.
