Bayside Council is proposing to introduce six new Heritage Conservation Areas.

What is a Heritage Conservation Area?

A Heritage Conservation Area (HCA) aims to protect areas valued by the community for their historic character. The architecture of buildings, fences, trees and gardens can all contribute to the character of an area. A HCA aims to protect these elements while still allowing development to occur. It is a way of managing change by outlining how development can be carried out without having a negative impact on the heritage values of the area.

Where are the proposed areas?

The proposed areas are:

  • Oceanview Estate, Bexley
  • Lansdowne and Hamilton Streets, Bardwell Valley
  • Brighton Parade, Brighton Le Sands
  • Farr and Gibbes Streets, Banksia
  • Moorefields Estate, Kogarah
  • Aloha and Forster Streets, Mascot

You can use our mapping tool to view the boundaries of each area.

Background

A HCA is legally defined by including it in Council's Local Environmental Plan (LEP). Due to our amalgamation in 2016, Council is currently working on a new LEP. As part of this work, a new Heritage Study is being conducted. The study has assessed thirteen different areas, and six are recommended for inclusion in the new LEP as HCAs.

You can view the Bayside Heritage Study report for a description of the history and significance of each area, and the elements which contribute to their special character. The report also details the areas that were considered but not recommended for heritage listing as HCAs.

What's happening now?

We are seeking feedback from property owners in the identified areas. We encourage you to share your views about the proposed changes by 3 November 2019.

You can provide feedback about this proposal:

What happens next?

Your feedback will be reported to Council, and will inform the final decision.

If the HCAs proceed, they will be incorporated into the new LEP. The LEP will be placed on public exhibition once it is drafted, to seek further community feedback. All property owners affected by any new HCAs will be notified in a separate planning process.
