In July 2021, a community nomination was lodged with Council by interested community members to include Roseberry Street, Hawthorn East in the Heritage Overlay. The community nomination and associated background information was referred to Council’s heritage consultant, Context, for assessment.
Council asked Extent Heritage to:
- carry out an independent peer review of the community nomination
- understand the merits of including Roseberry Street in the Heritage Overlay.
Extent Heritage was also provided with material submitted by community members.
On 4 October 2021, the Urban Planning Delegated Committee (UPDC) considered a report on the community nomination. The UPDC resolved to seek a further report addressing the viability of including the more intact section of Roseberry Street in the Heritage Overlay. This provided the opportunity for interested community members to give further written evidence supporting the nomination. The resolution also noted a further report would be considered on 6 December 2021.
On 8 November 2021, the UPDC considered a report seeking to defer the further report from 6 December 2021 to early 2022. This would allow more time for the written evidence from interested parties to be reviewed by Council’s heritage consultants. The UPDC resolved to defer the item to the first available meeting in February 2022.
On 21 February 2022, the UPDC will consider a report on the outcomes of the review of further written evidence provided by interested community members. You can access a copy of the UPDC report from 5pm, Friday 11 February 2022.
Any party will have the opportunity to address the UPDC in response to the the matter and the Council officer recommendations. For more information, please contact Robert Costello, Principal Strategic Planner by email at [email protected] or by phone on (03) 9278 4537.
