Amendments C186 – 5 Alma Street, Aberfeldie

The property at 5 Alma Street, Aberfeldie is significant for the evidence it provides of key phases in the development of Aberfeldie as a suburb in the first decades of the twentieth century.

It is also significant as an interwar villa that exhibits many features typical of the interwar brick Bungalow style, a popular form of domestic architecture in the suburbs during the 1920's. The dwellings have been assessed as having local historical, architectural and aesthetic significance to the City of Moonee Valley. 

The amendment will apply the Heritage Overlay to ensure that any future use, development or subdivision of the land is considered having regard to the purpose and decision guidelines of the Heritage Overlay and Council’s local heritage policy contained at Clause 21.01 of the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme.
