Moreland Heritage Gaps Study

Status update (December 2017)

Draft Moreland Heritage Gap Study

In late 2016, Council engaged Context Pty Ltd to prepare a draft Moreland Heritage Gap Study (PDF 40Mb)The Study assesses individual places and precincts identified as having potential significance in previous heritage studies prepared for the City of Moreland.

The Study recommends that the properties that meet the threshold for local significance, against State heritage criteria, be protected by a Heritage Overlay.

A Planning Scheme Amendment process to include the confirmed heritage places into the Moreland Heritage Overlay will be sought following endorsement of the Moreland Heritage Gaps Study by Council. 

Public heritage nomination process

A public heritage nomination process was held between 19 September 2016 and 30 November 2016.  

This process attracted over 700 potential heritage places which has significant implications in terms of the resources (including budget) required to action the nominations received.

On 8 February 2017, Council resolved to incorporate heritage assessments for the places nominated, and a subsequent new heritage study for the places of confirmed heritage significance into the Heritage Action Plan for future action.
