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 Heritage 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 needed to make changes to the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme and apply the Heritage Overlay to places of heritage significance. To do this we followed 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).
Specifically, Amendment C200moon:
- applies the Heritage Overlay to 57 heritage places, 9 extended heritage precincts, 17 new heritage precincts and 1 serial listing.
- introduces Statements of Significance in the Schedule to the Heritage Overlay
- updates the City of Moonee Valley Permit Exemptions Policy – Heritage Overlay Precincts.
- Amends Moonee Valley’s Planning Scheme Maps
