Notice of Banyule Planning Scheme Amendment C165 – Proposed Heritage Overlay
Banyule Council has prepared Amendment C165 which proposes to apply the Heritage Overlay to 21 places that have been identified as being of local heritage significance and recommended for protection in the Banyule Heritage Study 2020.
The City of Banyule constitutes the study area . Situated north-east of the Melbourne CBD, the municipality (approximately 63 km2 in area) has an estimated population of 131,940 residents (2020). The Yarra River (Birrarung) runs along Banyule’s south border while the west is defined by Darebin Creek. The topography is relatively level along the river flats extending westwards, with the remainder of the municipality characterised by an undulating terrain.
Amendment C165 is now on public exhibition and formal submissions to the amendment can be made.
What the amendment does
Amendment C165 proposes to make the following changes to the Banyule Planning Scheme:
- apply the Heritage Overlay on a permanent basis to 21 individual heritage places
- introduces the Banyule Heritage Study 2020 as a background document
- introduces Statements of Significance as incorporated documents for the 21 heritage places being added to the Heritage Overlay
The amendment also reduces the extent of the Heritage Overlay for the existing heritage place HO82 ‘Taruna House’
Where can I find more information?
The proposed Amendment will be on public exhibition from 7 February 2022 to 18 March 2022.
