The policies and provisions of the Manningham Planning Scheme must be taken into consideration and applied when considering a proposal for a heritage place that requires a planning permit.

Heritage Overlay

The Heritage Overlay provisions are set out at Clause 43.01 of the Manningham Planning Scheme. The Heritage Overlay details when a planning permit is required.

The Schedule to the Heritage Overlay lists the properties affected by the Heritage Overlay and any additional controls which may apply to that particular site. To check if a property is heritage listed check the Schedule to the Heritage Overlay.

The Heritage Overlay shows the location and extent of heritage controls over a particular heritage place

Under the Heritage Overlay a planning permit is required from the local Council to:

  • Subdivide or consolidate land
  • Demolish or remove a building (including part of a building)
  • Construct a building (including part of a building, or a fence)
  • Externally alter a building
  • Construct or carry out works
  • Construct or display a sign
  • Externally paint an unpainted surface, and
  • Externally paint a building if the painting constitutes an advertisement.

In some instances, external paint controls, internal alteration controls and control over trees may also apply. These additional controls are identified in the Schedule to the Heritage Overlay.

The Heritage Overlay will not always apply to the whole of the land. To help determine the extent the Heritage Overlay applies to a particular site please refer to the planning scheme maps.

Cultural Heritage Policy

The Cultural Heritage Policy is found within Clause 22.03 of the Local Planning Policy Framework of the Manningham Planning Scheme which aims to protect, conserve and manage identified cultural heritage places to ensure that any proposal to alter a heritage place does not have an adverse impact of the heritage values of the place.

Municipal Strategic Planning (MSS)

Council’s overall approach to heritage is found within Council’s Municipal Strategic Statement in the Local Planning Policy Framework of the Manningham Planning Scheme.

State Planning Policy Framework

The State Government’s Heritage Policy is contained within the State Planning Policy Framework of the Manningham Planning Scheme.

Heritage Guidelines

Draft Heritage Guidelines have been prepared for the Warrandyte Township Heritage Precinct. The Guidelines are intended to assist applicants and Council officers in preparing and assessing development applications within the Warrandyte Township Heritage Precinct.

The revised Guidelines have been developed in the form of seven (7) booklets, which are intended to be more user friendly as they provide more concise and clear information in relation to particular types of development as it applies to commercial and residential areas respectively.
