What does the Amendment do?
The amendment inserts a new permanent heritage place HO197, known as ‘Gateway and curtilage including two mature trees (elm trees), driveway and four mature trees (three elm trees and a pine tree), Arranmore, Miners Rest’, by inserting a new Map 5HO and updating the Schedule to the Heritage Overlay.
The amendment also inserts a new Reference Document in Clause 21.10 of the Ballarat Planning Scheme – “Gates and Gate Posts, Driveway and Ponds 80 Howe Street Miners Rest Heritage Investigation, May 2015, Wendy Jacobs”.
A planning permit (PLP/2014/476) was issued on the 22nd April 2015 for the staged residential subdivision, alteration of access to Road Zone Category 1 and removal of native vegetation at 80 Howe Street, Miners Rest. A permit condition requiring “protection of the gate and six trees protected by the interim Heritage Overlay during construction” is included in the permit. This amendment ensures permanent retention of the gateway and curtilage and associated elements are protected if the planning permit was to never proceed.
