2019 Queenscliffe Heritage Review

Monday, 20 May 2019

The Borough of Queenscliffe Council gives notice that a community workshop to discuss the 2019 Queenscliffe Heritage Review will be held on Wednesday 22 May in the Queenscliff Town Hall at 7:00pm.

As part of the review, Council plans to undertake a widespread audit of heritage controls in the Borough of Queenscliffe. We aim to develop a set of enhanced heritage citations that acknowledge new and upgraded heritage sites, such as the Point Lonsdale Lighthouse Reserve and Shortland’s Bluff, and guide our understanding and implementation of heritage controls to preserve our social history.
The Queenscliffe Heritage Review 2019 will include:

• Reassessment and review of the heritage of the Borough and its buildings, sites, precincts and trees;
• Review of definitions, mapping and citations within Council’s previous heritage review conducted in 2009, and amendments if needed;
• Identification of places of local, state and national heritage significance that were not included in the 2009 heritage review; and
• Amendment of the Queenscliffe Planning Scheme to reflect the results of these investigations.

Council would like to hear from people who live in the Borough of Queenscliffe and people in the wider community about what is important to you, how we can improve our management of local planning and heritage, and better ways of activating our heritage sites.
