Amendment C256 and C257

Heritage Protection for 390 Glenferrie Road, Malvern

Amendment C256 – 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 390 Glenferrie Road, Malvern.

On 6 July 2017 the Minister for Planning approved the interim Heritage Overlay for 390 Glenferrie Road, Malvern.  It will expire on 21 February 2018.

The interim Heritage Overlay will ensure the place is protected until Amendment C257 determines whether permanent heritage controls are appropriate.
