Protecting the peninsula’s heritage
Published on 16 May 2018
You are invited to have your say on Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Planning Scheme Amendment C214.
The Amendment follows from the adopted Mornington Peninsula Heritage Review, Stage 2 (The Review) which looked at existing places within the Heritage Overlay and places of potential heritage significance on the peninsula.
The Review identified places in Arthurs Seat, Capel Sound, Dromana, Fingal, Main Ridge, McCrae, Red Hill, Rosebud and Rye as places of potential heritage significance. The Amendment proposes to include these places in the Heritage Overlay of the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme.
These places were recommended by heritage experts under the supervision of Shire staff.
Shire Mayor Councillor Bryan Payne said the amendment will “contribute to the sense of place and community identity on the peninsula by recognising and protecting sites of heritage significance, and improving understanding of the local cultural history.
“Council is committed to protecting the unique characteristics of the peninsula and has engaged a heritage consultant to assist with this important process for Council to better manage Shire assets and protect the peninsula’s valuable history”.
The Amendment is open for public exhibition from Thursday 17 May to Friday 29 June 2018.
Submissions received and which cannot be resolved, will be considered by an independent panel appointed by the Minister for Planning.
