Council on 10 October 2023 considered the Panel's report and recommendations and decided to adopt Amendment C207 to the Yarra Ranges Planning Scheme with changes in accordance with the Panel’s recommendations and generally in accordance with Attachments to the report. The Amendment has been submitted to the Minister for Approval.
During work on the Lilydale Structure Plan in 2020-21, it was identified that there are some properties in Lilydale that are not currently protected by a Heritage Overlay, but which are properties that potentially have heritage significance.
Council undertook heritage studies, ‘Lilydale Stage 1a Heritage Gap Study Peer Review (Extent Heritage Pty Ltd, 2021), and Review of Stage 1b Lilydale Heritage Review Gap Study: Lilydale Heritage Study (Extent Heritage Pty Ltd, 2021)’, which recommended to address this issue by making changes to the Yarra Ranges Planning Scheme. These studies are attached on this page.
Amendment C207 proposes to apply a Heritage Overlay to 13 properties for the first time, based on the above studies. In addition, there are changes proposed to a further 7 properties that currently are covered by a heritage overlay but have outdated or incorrect information associated with them in the Planning Scheme.
