Heritage Gaps Amendment
Proposed Amendment C183 to the Yarra Planning Scheme aims to protect the historic character of Richmond in the area bounded by Bridge Road, Swan Street, Church Street and the Yarra River.
A full list of properties affected by the amendment is located in the PDF document below named ‘List of properties included in Amendment C183’.
The amendment proposes to make the following changes to the Yarra Planning Scheme:
- Apply the Heritage Overlay over 11 new heritage precincts
- Apply the Heritage Overlay over 25 individual properties (places not in precincts)
- Amend three existing Heritage Overlay precincts and a number of individual places that are already in the Heritage Overlay.
At its meeting on 23 August 2016, Council adopted Amendment C183 with the changes recommended by the Planning Panel in their report (see below).
In addition to a number of minor changes to the amendment, including the removal or re-classification of the grading of some properties, three precincts were deleted from the Amendment:
- Coppin Street Precinct
- Park Avenue Precinct
- Bellevue Estate Precinct
The Amendment has now been submitted to the Minister for Planning (Department of Land, Water, Planning and Environment) for approval.
The detailed changes to the Amendment are outlined in the Council report (23 August 2016) and resolution which is located on the Council meetings page.
Council sought community feedback about the amendment in April and May 2015. A number of submissions were received and considered at a Council meeting on 23 June 2015. At that meeting, Council considered submissions from the community and resolved to undertake further consultation for the proposed Amendment C183.
Council conducted a second round of community consultation in August 2015.
Council considered the submissions at its meeting on Tuesday 20th October, 2015, and resolved to request the Minister for Planning appoint an independent planning panel (in accordance with Section 23 of the Planning and Environment Act) to consider the issues raised in submissions.
