Current status (February 2017)

Interim heritage controls for Camberwell approved (Amendment C275)

Amendment C275 has been approved and was gazetted on 8 February 2018. The amendment introduces interim Heritage Overlays to all affected properties in Camberwell as recommended in Amendment C274. Amendment C274 seeks to introduce permanent Heritage Overlays as identified in the Camberwell Heritage Gap Study.

Under delegation from the Minister for Planning, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) has approved the interim Heritage Overlays with an expiry date of 1 March 2019.This will allow enough time for the permanent heritage control amendment to be properly considered.

Review of submissions received

Exhibition of Amendment C274 finished on 11 December 2017.

Council officers are now reviewing all submissions received and will prepare a report for consideration by the Urban Planning Special Committee (UPSC). 

The UPSC will decide whether to:

  • make changes to the amendment in response to submissions
  • seek appointment of an independent Panel and refer any submissions to the Panel for consideration
  • recommend adoption of the amendment by Council, if there are no submissions or all submissions have been resolved
  • abandon the amendment.

The report is likely to be considered by the UPSC in early 2018.
