In 2017, Council commenced the 2017 Heritage Study. The study assessed the heritage value of interwar, Edwardian and Victorian places and precincts currently not protected by the Heritage Overlay in the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme. The 2017 Heirtage Study can be downloaded here: https://mvcc.vic.gov.au/work/my-development/heritage/

Council engaged heritage consultants, Context, to undertake the assessments and make recommendations on wherever a property or precinct warrants protection via the application of the Heritage Overlay.

In order to implement the findings of this heritage study we need to make changes to the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme and apply the Heritage Overlay to places of heritage significance. To do this we must follow a process stipulated by the State Government. This process is called a ‘Planning Scheme Amendment’ (https://www.planning.vic.gov.au/schemes-and-amendments/amending-a-planning-scheme).

Amendment C200moon proposes to:

  • apply the Heritage Overlay to 60 heritage places, 9 extended heritage precincts, 18 new heritage precincts and 1 serial listing.
  • introduce Statements of Significance in the Schedule to the Heritage Overlay
  • update the City of Moonee Valley Permit Exemptions Policy – Heritage Overlay Precincts.
  • Amend Moonee Valley’s Planning Scheme Maps

Any person who may be affected by Amendment C200moon may make a written submission by:
