About the proposal

We are committed to the protection, conservation and enhancement of all heritage places in Boroondara.

Amendment C398boro proposes to apply a permanent Heritage Overlay to 18 individual properties in Balwyn and Balwyn North. Our heritage consultants have identified that these places have local heritage significance and are worthy of protection. We need to amend the Boroondara Planning Scheme to apply a Heritage Overlay to these locations.

You can learn more about each of these properties by downloading the Heritage Citations below.

Why are these places significant?

The Victorian Government has a list of recognised criteria we need to use to assess local heritage value. These are included in Planning Practice Note 1 – Applying the Heritage Overlay, which you can find on the Department of Transport and Planning website.

You can read the full Peer Review report and Heritage Citation below to learn more about how our heritage consultant decided that each property met the criteria.
