Amendment C266 – Heritage Overlay Review 2022

Background

Council is committed to protecting heritage values in Hume for future generations, as reaffirmed in the Hume Rural Strategy 2022. Council commissioned heritage consultants Biosis to conduct a review of the heritage places within Hume’s Heritage Overlay.

The Heritage Overlay is the part of the Hume Planning Scheme that identifies places of local heritage significance. It seeks to ensure that development does not adversely affect these places.

The review found inconsistencies that Council is now proposing to address through Amendment C266.

What does the amendment do?

Amendment C266 proposes changes to the Hume Planning Scheme to better protect and describe places of heritage significance in Hume. It implements the recommendations of the Hume Heritage Overlay Review 2022 prepared by Biosis consultants.

It proposes to:

  • Correct or refine the mapping of the Heritage Overlay for 99 heritage places.
  • Delete the Heritage Overlay from four places which have either been relocated or demolished via planning permit or destroyed in a bushfire.
  • Revise and incorporate Statements of Significance into the Hume Planning Scheme for 104 heritage places to ensure heritage values are accurately described and protected.
  • Correct any errors in the names or addresses of heritage places in the Heritage Overlay Schedule.
  • Include the Hume Heritage Overlay Review 2022 as a background document in the Hume Planning Scheme.

Amendment C266 only affects places already included in the Heritage Overlay. It does not apply the Heritage Overlay to any additional places.

A factsheet including the full list of heritage places affected by the amendment can be downloaded from the documents section on this page.
