Council’s heritage consultant, Context Pty Ltd, has identified the property at 7-11 Miami Street, Hawthorn East to be of individual heritage significance to the City of Boroondara.

Current status (April 2018)

Adoption of heritage citation and request for authorisation 

On Monday 19 February 2018,  the Urban Planning Special Committee (UPSC) adopted the heritage citation for 7-11 Miami Street, Hawthorn East and resolved to commence the formal planning scheme amendment process to apply the Heritage Overlay to the property on a permanent basis. 

The UPSC report can be downloaded from Council’s meetings and agendas webpage.

To introduce the Heritage Overlay, Council needs to amend the Boroondara Planning Scheme. To commence the planning scheme amendment process, Council has written to the Minister for Planning to request authorisation to prepare and exhibit Amendment C287. The Minister for Planning authorised the amendment on 26 February 2018.

Public exhibition

Amendment C287 is currently on public exhibition and you now have the opportunity to provide feedback to Council on the proposed changes.

Consideration by UPSC

Once the public exhibition process is complete, officers will review all submissions received and 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 mid-2018.
