Banyule Heritage Study
Posted on Monday, 24th February 2020 by Janine Rizzetti
Banyule Council is accepting nominations of buildings, places and precincts that can be assessed for their heritage significance, to enable their protection through the Banyule Planning Scheme Heritage Overlay.
The importance of placing buildings and precincts on the Heritage Overlay before there are plans for their demolition was highlighted last year, when an emergency overlay to protect Arden Chase in Rosanna was disallowed. There is so much development going on in our area, not just of ‘old’ places, but also architecture and streetscapes of the 40s-70s as well. These will be the heritage of the future.
Nominations for heritage places close on 27 March 2020,but Banyule Council is running two information sessions as well. The first is on Saturday 14 March 2.00 -3.30 p.m.at the Livingstone Community Centre in Ivanhoe, and the second is on Tuesday 17 March 7.00- 8.30 p.m. at the Council offices in Flintoff St Greensborough. You need to RSVP.

When the wire fences go up, people often say “Why don’t they protect this house?” It’s often too late then. They is YOU, and this is your chance seek protections for the places that are valued by your community.
