Current status (April 2018)

Awaiting Planning Minister’s Authorisation

On 19 March 2018, the Urban Planning Special Committee (UPSC) adopted the revised Hawthorn Heritage Gap Study following preliminary consultation, and resolved to:

  • commence the formal planning scheme amendment process to apply the recommended Heritage Overlays on a permanent basis, and
  • request the Minister for Planning to introduce the Heritage Overlays on an interim basis while the permanent Heritage Overlays are being implemented.

On 5 April 2018, Council wrote to the Minister for Planning to:

  • request authorisation to prepare and exhibit Amendment C284 (permanent Heritage Overlays)
  • request that the Minister introduce the interim Heritage Overlays (Amendment C285) while the permanent Heritage Overlays are being implemented. 

 Next steps

Following authorisation from the Minister for Planning, Council will commence the exhibition of Amendment C284.

As part of the public exhibition, we will notify and invite submissions from:

  • all affected and adjoining property owners and occupiers
