Moreland Heritage Gaps Study

Status Update (August 2017)

Moreland Heritage Gaps Study

A Moreland Heritage Gaps Study is currently underway. The individual places and precincts were identified in previous heritage studies prepared for the City of Moreland. 

The study is due to be finalised at the end of 2017 and will be presented to Council for endorsement.

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

Public Heritage Nomination Process

A public heritage nomination process was held from 19 September 2016 to 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. 

See 8 February 2017 Council report (PDF 5Mb) for further information.
