We recently completed the Hoddle Grid Heritage Review, the first comprehensive review of heritage buildings in the central city since the 1990s. The independent review took a holistic view of more than 1000 buildings, carefully considering Aboriginal, colonial, contemporary, community, tangible and intangible heritage values.

Based on our findings, we sought heritage protection for 137 properties and five precincts through Amendment C387. The properties included 55 places that represent the best of our city’s postwar residential and commercial architecture and tell the story of Melbourne’s evolution from 1945 to 1975.

Amendment C387 was open for exhibition between 5 November and 17 December 2020. It was approved by the Minister for Planning, and notice of approval of Amendment C387 was published in the Government Gazette on 9 September 2022.
