The Panel Report 

The Panel members prepared a Panel Report, following the conclusion of the Panel Hearing, providing recommendations on how the Amendment should proceed, this was provided to Council on 16 May 2025. 

In accordance with Section 26(3) of the Planning and Environment Act 1987 Council has now made the report available to the public for inspection and is available to read at this link:

C192bays - Panel Report

The Panel Report recommendations upheld Council's request to remove six properties from the amendment and recommended deleting an additional four properties. They support the application of the Heritage Overlay on the remaining 49 individual places and one group listing. 

Council must consider the Panel’s report before it decides whether to adopt the amendment and submit it to the Minister for Planning recommending approval. It is anticipated that this matter will be considered at the July Council Meeting. 

How did we get to this stage of the Amendment?

Council resolved to commence a Mid-Century Modern Heritage Study at its 23 June 2020 Ordinary Council Meeting, to be undertaken across 2020/21. The Study has now been prepared and re-titled as the Post-War Modern Residential Heritage Study.

Council undertook consultation on the draft Post-War Modern Residential Heritage Study from 7 February – 30 April 2022 and received feedback from property owners and key stakeholders which has greatly assisted the revision of the Study. Council also hosted a Delegated Committee Meeting which was held over two evenings at the Council Chamber, Civic Centre at Boxshall Street, Brighton on Wednesday 15 and Thursday 16 June 2022.

At its 19 July 2022 Meeting, Council considered the feedback received and decided to note the Post-War Modern Residential Heritage Study and resolved to remove 28 places from inclusion in a Heritage Overlay. Council also resolved to write to the Minister for Planning to seek authorisation to commence a planning scheme amendment to implement heritage controls on the remaining properties identified in the Study to be of heritage significance.

From 7 September to 19 October 2023, we consulted with property owners whose properties are a part of the Study, and now part of Amendment C192bays, to inform the assessment of their property’s heritage significance. During this period, community members and affected landowners made submissions either for or against the amendment.

A copy of the 19 July 2022 Council Meeting Agenda and Minutes are available to read on Council’s website.

Why is the Amendment required?

Bayside has a rich history and heritage, which is highly valued by the Bayside community. Historic buildings, landscapes, places and objects all contribute to Bayside’s livability and character.

Protecting and celebrating these places is therefore a vital function of Council for current and future generations.

Amendment C192bays will ensure that post war modern residential properties are more equally represented in the heritage protection of the City of Bayside

Council considers the Heritage Overlay to be the appropriate planning mechanism to protect the heritage values of these properties as it requires a permit to be granted for building and works, including demolition, that could affect the significance of these places.
