About the Balwyn Interwar Heritage Assessment

Council is completing a heritage assessment of 11 properties in Balwyn and Deepdene. These properties have potential heritage value and there is a proposal to apply the Heritage Overlay to the following properties:

  • 133, 133a, 135, 135a, 137, 139 and 141 Gordon Street, Balwyn (Gordon Street Precinct)
  • 41 Austin Street, Balwyn
  • 221 Whitehorse Road, Balwyn
  • 5 Creswick Street, Deepdene
  • 6 Creswick Street, Deepdene

Current Status (June 2022)

Preliminary consultation closed on 17 June 2022. Council officers will review all feedback received and prepare a report for the Urban Planning Delegated Committee (UPDC) to consider.

Next steps

The UPDC will decide whether to:

  • adopt the citations with or without changes as a result of the feedback received and/or recommended by Council officers
  • start the formal planning scheme amendment process to introduce the proposed changes into the Boroondara Planning Scheme
  • defer adoption of the citations and start of the amendment until more work is completed
  • abandon the proposal. 

The UPDC is likely to consider the report in the second half of 2022. 

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 UPDC in support of their feedback.
