George Street Designated Heritage Area Policy

In October 2019, Council considered the proposal to adopt the George Street Heritage Area and associated Local Planning Policy 3.1.6. 

Following a public comment period the Heritage Area and Policy was adopted at the February 2020 Council meeting. See the resolution below:

That Council: 

  1. in accordance with Schedule 2, Part 3, Clause 9 (6), (7) and (8) of the Planning and Development Local Planning Schemes) Regulations 2015, resolves to:

 (i) amend the George Street Designated Heritage Area as delineated in Attachment 1 to exclude 46 East Street from the George Street Designated Heritage Area; 

(ii) adopt the George Street Designated Heritage Area as delineated in Attachment 1 - Map of George Street Designated Heritage Area; 

(iii) adopt Local Planning Policy 3.1.6 – George Street Designated Heritage Area with modifications as outlined in Attachment 2 or as otherwise outlined in the condition above; and

(iv) revoke the George Street (heritage) Precinct as listed under Local Planning Scheme No. 3; and 

  1. notify the Heritage Council of WA, each land owner affected by the designation and all those who made a submission of the adoption of the George Street Designated Heritage Area and associated Local Planning Policy 3.1.6 – George Street Designated Heritage Area.

The Council believes it is important that a specific Local Planning Policy apply to the properties identified in the Heritage Area (refer to  map).  This is to ensure the heritage value and status of George Street as a distinct group is protected.  Future development in the area can now be managed as a cohesive whole under the provisions of the Policy. 

Detailed provisions will address the development requirements of the area for existing and new buildings (such as the Royal George Hotel site) with the aim of protecting this highly valued heritage area. 

Adoption of the George Street Designated Heritage Area is viewed as the beginning of the Town’s intention to progressively investigate the introduction of heritage areas within the Town for future consideration by Council.
