Banyule Council are commencing a Heritage Study to identify additional heritage places within Banyule and are seeking help from the local community to point out the unknown local heritage gems. The Centre Ivanhoe, Greensborough War Memorial Park and the Viewbank Silos are among those sites that already have heritage status.
There are currently 190 places and precincts protected by the Heritage Overlay in the Banyule Planning Scheme. This study will identify and assess the heritage value of places that are not yet covered by the Heritage Overlay. The local community are encouraged to nominate potential heritage places to be considered as part of the study.
For more information about the project, including dates for community information sessions in March and how to nominate a place, please visit Shaping Banyule .
The Victorian Heritage Register lists and provides legal protection for heritage places and objects that are significant to the history and development of Victoria.
March 17 Update: The Community Information Session for the Banyule Heritage Study on Tuesday 17 March has been cancelled due to concerns with the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).
This decision has been made with the wellbeing of the community in mind as non-essential community events are cancelled. Nominations for heritage places can continue to be made online until 27 March 2020
