Why is the amendment required?
The amendment is required to recognise the heritage significance of the buildings at 28, 30, 32 and 34 Service Street, Hampton. Heritage controls currently apply to the individual properties at 33, 35, 37 and 39 Service Street, however upon recent assessment, the collective sites form part of a larger heritage precinct, incorporating eight contributory buildings. The extension of heritage controls to 28-34 Service Street is to protect the heritage values at these sites and consolidate the area as a heritage precinct.
Which properties are affected?
The following properties are directly affected by the amendment:
- 28 Service Street Hampton;
- 30 Service Street Hampton;
- 32 Service Street Hampton;
- 33 Service Street Hampton;
- 34 Service Street Hampton;
- 35 Service Street Hampton;
- 37 Service Street Hampton; and
- 39 Service Street Hampton.
What does the Heritage Overlay mean for owners and developers of affected land?
The application of the Heritage Overlay means that a planning permit will be required to:
- demolish a building;
- construct a building or carry out works;
- externally alter a building; or
- carry out works that will change the appearance or heritage value of the heritage place.
Note: At the time the amendment was authorised, none of the dwellings had been demolished. Click here to find out more about the demolition.
The impact of the demolition can be considered as part of the next stage of the process and as part of Council's response to submissions.
