About Former Withers House – Heritage Assessment
Council has engaged Built Heritage to prepare a heritage assessment for the former Withers House, 32 Corby Street, Balwyn North.
The assessment has now been completed and has identified the place to be of local heritage significance. It is recommended for inclusion in the Heritage Overlay under the Boroondara Planning Scheme as an individually significant heritage place.
Current Status – May 2022
Adoption of Heritage Citation
On 18 October 2021, the Urban Planning Delegated Committee (UPDC) adopted the heritage citation and resolved to commence the formal planning scheme amendment process to apply the Heritage Overlay to the property.
Amendment C357boro has applied the Heritage Overlay to the property on an interim basis, until 12 January 2023.
To introduce the Heritage Overlay on a permanent basis, Council needs to amend the Boroondara Planning Scheme.
For information on the current planning scheme amendment, visit the Amendment C368boro page.
For more information, contact Mikaela Carter, Senior Strategic Planner (Monday to Wednesday):
Please note that Council commissioned 2 heritage assessments for the site. While both recommended its inclusion in the Heritage Overlay under the Boroondara Planning Scheme as an individually significant place, only the draft heritage citation prepared by Built Heritage forms the basis for pre-consultation and UPDC consideration.
