SHIRE OF YORK

DRAFT LOCAL HERITAGE SURVEY, HERITAGE LIST, HERITAGE AREAS AND REVISED LOCAL PLANNING POLICY: HERITAGE CONSERVATION & DEVELOPMENT

AVAILABLE FOR INSPECTION

Notice is hereby given that the Shire of York, has prepared the abovementioned draft Local Heritage Survey, Heritage List, Heritage Areas and revised Local Planning Policy: Heritage Conservation & Development, which if adopted will replace the existing Municipal Heritage Inventory, Heritage List, Heritage Areas and Local Planning Policy: Heritage Precincts and Places.

Draft Local Heritage Survey

The Local Heritage Survey lists places, that in the opinion of the local authority are or may become culturally heritage significant.

Draft Heritage List & Heritage Areas

Places and areas which have cultural heritage significance and are worthy of built heritage conservation are identified for inclusion on a Heritage List or within a Heritage Area, adopted under a local planning scheme, which provides a statutory basis for the consideration of heritage conservation during development of that place.

Along with changes being made to the Heritage List, the review has resulted in the three heritage areas being identified; Blandstown, York Town Centre and Central York which will be bound by the Railway and Grey Street to the west, Ford Street to the north, Avon River to the east, and Knotts road to the south, including 5 Knotts Road, York (Bygraves Cottage) and 2 Avon Terrace, York (Balladong Farm).

Draft Local Planning Policy: Heritage Conservation & Development

Draft Local Planning Policy: Heritage Conservation & Development applies to all development within the Heritage Areas and Places on the Heritage List. The objectives of the policy are to:

  • To conserve and protect places of cultural heritage significance and worthy of built heritage conservation as identified in the Shire’s Heritage List;
  • To conserve existing places identified as being of ‘exceptional’, ‘considerable’ or ‘some’ significance to the cultural heritage significance of a heritage area; and
  • To ensure that new development, including alterations and additions to existing buildings and the construction of new buildings, does not adversely impact on the cultural heritage values, significance and character of heritage places and areas.

Plans and documents that set out and explain, as well as a copy of the draft Local Heritage Survey, Heritage List, Heritage Areas and revised Local Planning Policy: Heritage Conservation & Development are available on the Shire’s website here and have been deposited at the Council offices at 1 Joaquina Street, York and will be open for inspection during office hours up to the 19 September 2019.
