Amendment C254 and C255

Heritage Protection for 221 Burke Road, Glen Iris

Amendment C254 – Interim Heritage Controls

In February 2017, Council requested that the Minister for Planning prepare and approve an Amendment to apply an interim Heritage Overlay to 221 Burke Road, Glen Iris.

On 6 July 2017 the Minister for Planning approved the interim Heritage Overlay for 221 Burke Road.  It will expire on 7 April 2018.

The interim Heritage Overlay will ensure the place is protected until Amendment C255 determines whether permanent heritage controls are appropriate.

Amendment C255 – Permanent Heritage Controls

The City of Stonnington has prepared Amendment C255 to the Stonnington Planning Scheme.

Amendment C255 has been prepared to introduce permanent heritage protection to 221 Burke Road, Glen Iris.

Specifically the Amendment:

  • Varies the Schedule to Clause 43.01 Heritage Overlay to include HO586 221 Burke Road, Glen Iris with permanent heritage status.
  • Amends Planning Scheme Map 7HO to show HO586, with permanent heritage controls.
