Bayside City Council has undertaken significant work in relation to protecting Bayside's heritage. By conducting the heritage studies below, we have been able to identify places of local significance and implement heritage protection under the Bayside Planning Scheme. Heritage protection covers a range of places in Bayside including individual buildings, precincts, trees and structures. Heritage protection is implemented through the Heritage Overlay which applies additional planning regulations to ensure the place's heritage significance is upheld.
Heritage action plan 2020
The plan guides Council's work program for the identification, protection, management and promotion of Bayside's heritage assets for the next ten years.
Post-war modern residential heritage study
Currently in progress.
The Post-War Modern Residential Heritage Study has been compiled by independent heritage specialists to identify and document residential places within Bayside from the post-war modern period which should be considered for heritage protection. The Study has been revised following consultation with property owners and key stakeholders from 7 February - 30 April 2022.
Council will consider the Study at its 19 July 2022 Council meeting. Following this, a planning scheme amendment process may commence to protect properties found to be of heritage significance via a Heritage Overlay.
