In April 2018 Council abandoned planning scheme amendments which sought interim heritage controls while a detailed heritage study of mid-century modern properties in Beaumaris and Black Rock was undertaken.
This decision was made in response to considerable community opposition to the proposed amendments.
Last week Council wrote to all property owners in the Beaumaris and Black Rock areas with houses built between 1945 and 1975 inviting owners of mid-century properties to consider voluntary heritage protection for their homes.
Nominations are open until the end of March 2019.
Council is committed to protecting Bayside’s heritage for future generations and recognising the significance of mid-century modern architecture to our prized neighbourhood character.
This new approach strikes a balance between protecting Bayside’s valuable heritage buildings and respecting the concerns of property owners.
