The City of Melbourne prepared Amendment C365 to update the heritage controls for the Guildford and Hardware Laneways Precinct. The amendment applied specifically to the property at 372-378 Little Bourke Street, known as Chart House, and sought to include it in the Precinct as a contributory building.
A panel hearing was held in December 2019 to hear submissions to the Amendment. The panel supported the inclusion of the site within the Guildford and Hardware Laneways Precinct Heritage Overlay, but with a ‘non-contributory’ grading.
Amendment C365 has now been approved by the Minister for Planning as per the panel’s recommendation and was gazetted on 29 May 2020.
