Council has prepared Amendment C214 to the Yarra Planning Scheme. 

The amendment applies to three properties in Richmond:

  • 77-79 Burnley Street
  • 1-9 Doonside Street
  • 81-95 Burnley Street

It proposes to introduce a Heritage Overlay on the properties at 77-79 Burnley Street and 1-9 Doonside Street (there is already a Heritage Overlay affecting 81-95 Burnley Street) and include the three properties in a Heritage Precinct, known as the Doonside Heritage Precinct.

In order to introduce the Heritage Overlay, a planning scheme amendment is required.
