Victorian Bushfire Emergency

The 2019/2020 Victorian Bushfire Emergency is currently affecting communities across the state. We will continue to keep you updated on our efforts to support communities affected by bushfires. To find out more and how you can support the Victorian Bushfire Appeal, visit our Victorian Bushfire Emergency page.

Heritage next steps

We understand the importance of protecting and celebrating the heritage and character of Glen Eira. Our 2018 update to the Glen Eira Heritage Policy had a significant impact on our most treasured buildings.

The Minister for Planning has approved the revised documents. For more information, please see the Planning Scheme Amendment C149 Explanatory Report (PDF, 35KB).

What are we doing next?

We'll keep looking for opportunities to include new heritage properties and sites which aren't currently protected. We also value your ideas.

The 2018 Planning Scheme Review Work Plan (PDF, 1.5MB) outlines a number of stages that carry over the Heritage Review from the 2016 Work Plan. But we have re-scoped the 2018 plan because it's a large project.

Items from the 2018 Work Plan

Item 23: Heritage Review – Bentleigh and Carnegie Activity Centre

The consultant review is near completion for potential heritage places within the structure plan areas of Bentleigh and Carnegie. 

Item 24: Heritage Review – Elsternwick Activity Centre 

The consultant review is underway for the Elsternwick Activity Centre and the existing Elsternwick Heritage Overlay (H072) Citation.

Item 25: Heritage Review – Hidden gems and Caulfield Station precinct

  • Post-war desktop heritage review and Hidden Gems review (proposed to commence in May 2019). The heritage consultant is required to undertake a desktop study of Postwar architecture in Glen Eira and propose a list of sites that warrant inclusion in the Heritage Overlay. The consultant will also review a list of Hidden Gems which include sites from the Victorian, Federation and Interwar period that are not currently included in the Heritage Overlay and have been nominated by members of the public, the Glen Eira Historical Society and Council officers as being of potential heritage significance.
  • Heritage Review of Caulfield Station Structure Plan Precinct, the remainder of Caulfield East, Glen Huntly and surrounding areas (currently being undertaken by heritage consultant).

Item 26: Heritage Review – Bentleigh and Carnegie Activity Centre residential area, hidden gems and Caulfield Station Precinct Planning Scheme Amendment

We need a Planning Scheme Amendment to implement Heritage Review actions into the Bentleigh and Carnegie Activity Centre residential area, hidden gems and Caulfield Station Precinct. The amendment process will include:

  • authorisation
  • exhibition
  • consideration of submissions
  • panel and final decision.

Item 27: Heritage Review – Suburb by Suburb

This stage involves a municipality-wide review of heritage by suburb (except those already assessed in stages 1-3). It will most likely occur for one or two suburbs at a time, and is expected to happen over a number of years.

Item 28: ABC Gordon Street Heritage Planning Scheme Amendment

We're seeking permanent heritage protection for the ABC studios in Gordon Street, Elsternwick. The proposed Amendments are C182.
