Tuck Shop Take Away has been named Glen Eira City Council’s Shop of the Year.
Historical brick and rendered building facades are part of the distinctive look and feel of Murrumbeena Village, the commercial strip radiating out along the intersection of Murrumbeena and Neerim Roads. Known and valued by residents, occupants, traders and visitors, these buildings tell us about the origins and evolution of the surrounding suburb.
A heritage overlay was recently approved by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning for Murrumbeena Village.
Glen Eira Mayor Cr Margaret Esakoff said the heritage overlay (Planning Scheme Amendment C201), is now included in the Glen Eira Planning Scheme, and has been applied to the properties that were proposed in the Murrumbeena Village precinct.
“The amendment protects the heritage values of the precinct and will preserve the story of the strip,” she said.
Dating from the late 1880s, the origins of Murrumbeena Village lie in residential development and subdivision of land, catalysed by the opening of the Murrumbeena Railway Station in 1879. A number of shop buildings remain from this time, including the Village’s oldest at 430 Neerim Road — a double storey Victorian era building built in 1889.
