At its Ordinary Council Meeting on 17 March 2021, Council voted in favour of the Council Officer’s recommendation and determined to make a request to the Minister for Planning to extend the interim heritage controls. This affects all properties included in the proposed ‘Heritage Overlay 7 Precinct Extension’.
The report and minutes are available to view here: https://www.portphillip.vic.gov.au/about-the-council/council-meetings/2021-meetings-and-agendas.
Following this, Council’s request was submitted to the Minister, and Council’s request to extend the expiry date of the interim heritage overlay through Amendment C200port has been approved under delegation from the Minister for Planning. The Amendment will come into effect in the coming weeks when notice of its approval is published in the Victoria Government Gazette. Please note that the current interim controls (applied through Amendment C188port) will continue to apply until 1 April 2021.
As such, the expiry date of the interim Heritage Overlay 7 (HO7) applying to these properties, has been extended until 1 October 2021 through Amendment C200port to the Port Phillip Planning Scheme.
