Amendments C195 – 89 Glass Street, Essendon

The property at 89 Glass Street, Essendon has been assessed as having local historic and aesthetic significance to the City of Moonee Valley. It is significant for the evidence it provides as an intact example of the interwar (Old English) residential phase of development of the suburb. The key elements of the site that contribute to the significance include the substantial front setback, the landscaped setting and the original form, materials and detailing of the house, garage and fencing.

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 at Clause 43.01 and the integrated heritage policy contained at Clause 15.03 of the Moonee Valley Planning Scheme.
