As the interim Heritage Overlays have now been introduced, any proposals for demolition and other buildings and works may require a planning permit.

Current status (October 2019)

On 3 October 2019 Council received the report from the independent Panel on Amendment C284 and submissions referred to it.  You can access a copy of the Panel report from the download section below.  

Council officers are currently reviewing the Panel report and will prepare a report for consideration by the Urban Planning Special Committee (UPSC).  The report is likely to be considered by the UPSC in February 2020.   

Next steps

The UPSC will decide whether to:

  • Adopt the changes recommended by the independent Panel and/or Council officers.
  • Refer Amendment C284 to an Ordinary Council Meeting with a recommendation to adopt the amendment (with or without further changes); or 
  • Refer Amendment C284 to an Ordinary Council Meeting with a recommendation to abandon the amendment.

All submitters to the amendment as well as any affected and adjoining property owners and occupiers will have the opportunity to address the UPSC in support of their submission and any Council officer recommendations.
