Update June 2021: Council adopted this assessment (now called the Waverley Heritage Policy) at the 8 June Strategic Planning and Development Committee. The final policy, consultation summary and Council report and available to view here.
Waverley’s heritage buildings, streetscapes, landscapes and items are much loved by the community and contribute to the area’s highly prized character. These places have significant cultural value and help tell the story of Waverley’s history as one of the earliest municipalities in NSW.
Council has prepared a draft Heritage Assessment to demonstrate the value we place on heritage in all forms – built environment, landscapes and streetscapes. Once finalised, the Assessment will be used to inform Council decision-making with regards to Development Applications and Planning Proposals, and to make recommendations for the future of Waverley’s building and landscapes. It will also inform the comprehensive review of the LEP and DCP.
The Assessment aims to:
- celebrate Waverley’s history and character
- increase community awareness of the LGA’s heritage
- protect and enhance character to ensure continuity between past, present and future
- ensure that what is historically important is conserved for the enjoyment of future generations
- maintain Waverley as an attractive place to be.
The Draft Assessment proposes the following additions to Schedule 5 of the Waverley Local Environment Plan, as summarised below (click on each for a summary):
The full inventory listing sheets for the proposed conservation areas are in Volume 2 below.
