Given the current circumstances, we have extended the submission deadline till the 3 April 2020.


Council invites you to have your say on a revised Planning Proposal to recognise and conserve various properties and areas of local heritage significance in Hurlstone Park.

The draft planning documents on exhibition are:

  • Revised Planning Proposal. Following an initial exhibition of the Planning Proposal in 2017, Council has considered submissions and commissioned an external review. This has resulted in changes to the items to be heritage listed and the proposed Heritage Conservation Areas (HCAs). The revised Planning Proposal (PP_2016_CBANK_003) seeks to:
    • List 35 properties as local heritage items in Hurlstone Park (increased from 29).
    • Identify 6 Heritage Conservation Areas in Hurlstone Park (increased area covered by HCAs, 2 new HCAs proposed and Tennent Parade HCA no longer proceeding).
    • Rezone land in the HCAs from R4 High Density Residential and R3 Medium zoned land to R2 Low Density Residential (except 2–10 Marcia Street).
    • Reduce the maximum building height in the B2 Local Centre zone in the HCAs from 14 metres to 11 metres and 9 metres.
  • Draft Amendments to Canterbury Development Control Plan 2012 (Chapter B8). The proposed changes include new controls that will apply to all heritage items and places of heritage significance in the former Canterbury Council area, including the proposed Heritage Conservation Areas in Hurlstone Park.

Revised Planning Proposal
