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 (February 2018)

Adoption of Miami Flats 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.

Next steps

As part of the public exhibition process, Council will notify all affected and adjoining/abutting property owners/ occupiers, anyone who lodged feedback as part of the preliminary consultation as well as any other interested stakeholders of the proposed Heritage Overlay and invite feedback.

It is likely public exhibition will commence in mid-2018.
