Adoption of the Camberwell Heritage Gap Assessment

Access a copy of the UPSC report.
To ensure the Camberwell Heritage Gap Assessment is considered as part of the planning permit process, Council needs to amend the Boroondara Planning Scheme. To commence the planning scheme amendment process, Council will now write to the Minister for Planning to request authorisation to prepare and exhibit Amendment C274. Following authorisation from the Minister for Planning, Council will commence the exhibition process.
