Project Overview

Heritage provides us with important evidence as to how our community has evolved and developed over time.

As a region with high growth, heritage is particularly important to Wyndham as a touchstone to the past and a key contributor to a strong sense of place in our communities. There are pressures on our special heritage places due to development and competing strategic objectives such as infrastructure provision and housing growth.

Council must manage these pressures on our historical places, to ensure that amenity and the character of areas is retained and protected ensuring that any development is sensitive to identified heritage places.

The Wyndham Heritage Review represents an important opportunity to protect places of local heritage significance in the face of unprecedented growth, to strengthen the City’s unique character, and to celebrate the history of Wyndham with our community.

Wyndham Heritage Review – Stage 1 (Gap Study)

Council has completed a Stage 1 Heritage Review (Gap Study) which reviewed the existing Heritage Overlay, existing heritage resources such as unprotected heritage places in established areas of Wyndham and identified a number of gaps in the protection of post contact heritage places in Wyndham.

The Stage 1 Heritage Review (Gap Study) recommended further investigation and detailed assessment of 173 Individual Sites, including residential, commercial, industrial, community, archaeological places, military and infrastructure related sites, landscapes and trees, complex places, comprised of multiple land parcels and new precincts.

The Stage 1 Gap Study also recommended corrections to existing heritage citations, and the preparation of detailed Thematic Environmental History for Wyndham.

Stage 2 study – Residential Places and Precincts

At the Ordinary Council Meeting 29th June 2021, Council resolved to adopt the Stage 1 Study and commence the first of the Stage 2 heritage studies - Work Item 1 (Residential places and precincts). This will include individual residential places (including some groups) and precincts (generally residential, but also including the Campbells Cove/Baileys Beach boatshed precinct). You can read more about the Council process here.

Stage 2 Study - Residential Places and Precincts

At the Ordinary Council Meeting 29th June 2021, Council resolved to adopt the Stage 1 Gap Study and commence the first Stage 2 heritage study into Residential Places and Precincts.

The Stage 1 Gap Study identified 87 individual residential places and 7 precincts that warrant further detailed assessment through Stage 2 of the Wyndham Heritage Review.

Council has engaged a qualified heritage consultant to conduct a Stage 2 Heritage Study of the 87 individual places and 7 precincts identified in the Stage 1 Gap Study. The Study will make a detailed assessment of residential places and precincts. It will seek to verify their age, intactness and significance of these sites and whether they meet the threshold for heritage protection.

Should the expert advice be that the place is locally significant and warrants planning protection, Council will seek to undertake a Planning Scheme Amendment to include locally significant sites on the Schedule to the Heritage Overlay and nominate State significant sites to the Victorian Heritage Register.
