Under delegation Council resolved to downgrade 14 and 16 Calvin Street, Hawthorn from contributory to non-contributory places in Creswick Estate Heritage Precinct - Heritage Overlay Schedule 646 (HO646).

Current status (November 2018)

Following consultation with affected and abutting land owners and occupiers, Council (under delegation) resolved to regrade 14 and 16 Calvin Street, Hawthorn to non-contributory places within the Creswick Estate Precinct. The grading change came into effect on 31 October 2018.

About the regradings

Council’s Heritage Consultant, Context Pty Ltd, reassessed the heritage grading of 14 and 16 Calvin Street, Hawthorn in August 2018 following the demolition of 14 Calvin Street, Hawthorn. 

Council’s Heritage Consultant recommended that both 14 and 16 Calvin Street, Hawthorn be regraded from contributory to non-contributory properties within the Creswick Estate Precinct.  

Council’s Heritage Consultant concluded that the loss of one-half of the semi-attached pair (14 Calvin Street, Hawthorn) has detrimentally affected the heritage significance of the remaining half of the semi-detached pair (16 Calvin Street, Hawthorn). No. 16 Calvin Street no longer has the intactness needed to be considered a contributory place in the Creswick Estate Precinct.

More detail on the recommended grading change is provided in the regrading assessment.

Consultation

Council sought feedback from affected and abutting land owners and occupies between 23 August and 21 September 2018. 

No submissions were received.

Council's decision

Under delegation, Council resolved to downgrade the properties to non-contributory, as recommended by Council’s Heritage Consultant. 

The grading change came into effect on 31 October 2018. 

The properties will remain in the Heritage Overlay. A planning permit will still be required for demolition and buildings works and future and current planning permit applications will be assessed against the provisions of the Heritage Overlay and Council’s Heritage policy at Clause 22.03 of the Boroondara Planning Scheme.
