March 2016 update

At its Ordinary Council Meeting on Tuesday, 22 March 2016, Council adopted the Heritage Study 2015 (pdf 10MB) and resolved to seek Ministerial authorisation to prepare and exhibit Amendment C164 to the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme.

December 2015 update

Following completion of the consultation period on Friday, 11 December 2015, Council officers, with assistance from Context (Council’s external heritage consultants), are considering the feedback received from the community and making changes to the study where necessary.

A report will then be presented at a Council meeting for a final decision.

If the study is adopted by Council, we will then prepare an amendment to place the identified places into a heritage overlay. This amendment will then be exhibited and the community will again have the opportunity to provide feedback.

Introducing the Draft Heritage Study 2015

If the study is adopted by Council, we will then prepare an amendment to place the identified places into a heritage overlay. This amendment will then be exhibited and the community will again have the opportunity to provide feedback.

We’ve been working on a heritage study called the draft Heritage Study 2015. The study focuses on four of the high priority areas identified in our adopted Heritage Gap Study.

This study was conducted by heritage experts who researched and surveyed identified places in the local area to ascertain their heritage value.

Please follow the links below to review the Draft Heritage Study 2015 and view a detailed assessment of each identified place;

This study aims to:

  • identify the heritage value of places recommended as high priority in the Heritage Gap Study themes of:
    • Shops, commercial buildings and shopping strips
    • Transport-related places (including stables)
    • Industrial places and suburban infrastructure
    • Community-use buildings
  • provide a detailed assessment of each identified place
  • recommend heritage overlays for those places identified as being of heritage value

What is the focus of this study?

Our adopted Heritage Gap Study identified places that were of potential heritage value under a range of themes.

These themes were listed in a prioritised work program that guides which heritage studies should be undertaken in the future.

The draft Heritage Study 2015 focuses on four of the high priority themes. These are: 

Shops, commercial buildings and shopping strips

Shopping strips, particularly in Essendon and near tram and train lines.

Transport-related places (including stables)

These places are not well represented on the Heritage Overlay, and places related to horse racing are perceived to be under threat.

Industrial places and suburban infrastructure

These places are not well represented on the Heritage Overlay.

Community-use buildings

These buildings have been identified because they may have social, cultural or historical significance.
