Consultation has concluded

Nominations sought for heritage places

Council is currently undertaking a Heritage Study Review to identify places and objects that have significant cultural heritage value that warrant local level heritage protection.

People were asked to nominate places or objects that they believed had heritage significance.

Nominations require a full heritage assessment and the preparation of a statement of significance to determine whether they satisfy the threshold of local significance and would justify the application of the Heritage Overlay.

What type of places could be nominated in the review?

We were interested in any places that might be considered to be of potential heritage significance

Heritage places (which includes not only buildings but trees, gardens, other structures, street furniture, public art, etc) can include anything that might be considered of significance to the local community in terms of:

  • historical
  • aesthetic
  • architectural
  • technological
  • social
  • spiritual significance.

We were not only interested in buildings but also other structures, street furniture, public art, or anything else in the physical environment that may be of potential significance.

The study will have particular focus on the post-Second World War era, so we were especially interested in identifying any places from the 1940s, 50s, 60s, or even more recently. These might include such things as architect-designed houses from that era, display houses and project house prototypes (A V Jennings, etc), buildings that have won architectural awards, and so on.

Get involved in the Review

There will be several opportunities for the community to be involved in the heritage study review process:

  • Council sought nominations of places that could potentially be included in the Heritage Overlay.
  • Further consultation will be carried out following the preparation of the First Draft report.
  • Following the preparation of the final report, Council will consider the recommendations of the report and initiate the planning scheme amendment process. Formal exhibition will then be carried out as part of the statutory public consultation process.
