The City of Melbourne has been at the forefront of heritage planning in Australia since the 1980s. When the first heritage controls were introduced, more than 30 studies were undertaken to document the city’s heritage.
Now more than 7000 properties are protected under the Heritage Overlay in the Melbourne Planning Scheme. The municipality has benefited from this commitment to heritage and is renowned as one of the world’s great Victorian-era cities, with a rich diversity of heritage places.
