The City of Melbourne has prepared Amendment C396: Finalisation of the Heritage Places Inventory to convert the heritage gradings of properties which were not converted through a separate amendment, Amendment C258: Heritage Policies Review and West Melbourne Heritage.

Last year Amendment C258 converted the heritage gradings for properties from the existing heritage grading system to a contemporary system. This was needed to bring the City of Melbourne into line with best practice and to comply with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning requirements. The gradings for approximately 7,000 heritage properties were converted to the new system with approximately 350 remaining.

Amendment C396 has been prepared to convert the gradings of the remaining heritage properties. The amendment does not introduce new heritage protection for these properties.

Amendment C396 was presented to the Future Melbourne Committee on 16 March 2021. The Future Melbourne Committee resolved to seek authorisation from the Minister for Planning to prepare and exhibit the amendment.

This is the start of the planning scheme amendment process. It is anticipated that Amendment C396 will be placed on public exhibition for five weeks in mid-2021, subject to authorisation by the Minister for Planning. Anyone will be able to make a submission about the amendment during the exhibition period.
