Amendment C142 Heritage Places Study

May 2015

Amendment C142 was gazetted on Thursday, 14 May. 

This amendment implements the findings of the Moonee Valley Thematic Places Heritage Study 2012-14.  It does this by applying the Heritage Overlay to places identified in this study, including along Mt Alexander Road and 2-20 Levien Street, Essendon.

The application of the Heritage Overlay requires a planning permit to subdivide land, demolish or remove a building and to construct a building or carry out works, including fences. This is to ensure that development does not adversely affect the significance of a heritage place.

For further information about the Heritage Overlay, or planning permit requirements, you are encouraged to contact Councils’ Statutory Planning Department on 9243 8888.
