Council to protect heritage

10 Dec 2013

Council to protect heritage Image

With the high level of development in Southbank over the last decade it would be easy to imagine there are no heritage listed sites in the suburb at all.

In fact there are 35 different heritage listed sites here in Southbank and in November the City of Melbourne launched its 15-year heritage strategy to help protect these and other sites across the city.

Heritage protected sites include the Boyd school, the former Main Point Hotel (now the costume shop), the former Bank of NSW (now a cafe), the former Robur Tea building, the police stable and the old Collins Mitsubishi shed.

The strategy focuses on which sites are vitally important to protect and how the council can influence their protection.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said it was important Melbourne continued its protection of significant landmarks and buildings.

“Melbourne is renowned as one of the world’s great Victoria-era cities which contains many streetscapes, parks and buildings recognised as important heritage places,” Cr Doyle said.
