The City of Stonnington is proud of its rich and varied heritage, which contribute to its distinctiveness, desirability and liveability. 

We are committed to the recognition and protection of Stonnington’s highly valued heritage.

A heritage place can include a site, a building, a group of buildings, a structure, a garden or other places of natural or cultural significance.

The application of planning controls, including the heritage overlay, are important in sustaining the diverse aspects of our city that are important to us while leaving a legacy for future generations.
