Representative Buildings Review Code Amendment

Project overview

Consultation is now closed for the Representative Buildings Review Code Amendment.

We thank you for sharing your valuable feedback.

In 2010 and 2012, Council conducted surveys to preserve our city's historical areas and places. These surveys identified 431 significant buildings in certain areas that were not included in the city's previous Development Plan.

After reviewing the State Government's Planning and Design Code, we found that six historic areas in City of Prospect have recognised Representative Buildings. However, in five other areas (North Ovingham, Medindie Gardens, Ballville/Gloucester, Prospect Lanes, and Highbury), there are currently no Representative Buildings listed.

Based on the previous heritage surveys, Council conducted a Historic Areas Matrix Analysis in 2023. This analysis involved examining the streetscape of each property in the affected area, leading to the recommendation for a total of 454 Representative Buildings within the five identified historic areas.

What's next?

  • We are compiling all your feedback and will prepare a report for Council.
