As part of this process a heritage assessment of the area has been undertaken. The assessment identifies the area as having aesthetic, historic and social value to the City, therefore warranting consideration as a heritage area under the Local Planning Scheme.
The City’s residential heritage areas are subject to the provisions of Local Planning Policy 3.4 Development guidelines for residential heritage areas. The policy provides for the effective management of heritage values and the protection of the traditional streetscape character. Should Council resolve to designate the heritage area it will be subject to the provisions of this policy.
A report requesting permission to formally advertise the proposed heritage area will be presented to Council at an Ordinary Council Meeting (OCM) in late 2023. Should Council resolve to advertise the proposed heritage area all relevant information and submissions will be presented to Council for consideration following the close of the public advertising period.
If you own a property listed on the Heritage List or a contributory place within a heritage area you may be eligible to apply for funding through the City of Subiaco heritage grants fund.
For more information and to apply, please see the Heritage Grants Fund Information Sheet and the Heritage Grant Fund Application Form.
Applications close Monday 2 October 2023 at 5pm
