Project updates

Project details


In response to a development application (DA) to demolish a house at 73 The Boulevarde, Dulwich Hill (Lot 1 DP 301656) Council recommended that an interim heritage order be placed on the property. This came into effect on 23 March 2018. At its meeting on 28 August 2018, Council resolved to include it and the adjoining house at 73A The Boulevarde as items of local heritage significance and refer the matter in a planning proposal to the Department of Planning & Environment for Gateway determination.

This was granted and the planning proposal and supporting documents are now on public exhibition for community consultation.

Purpose of the planning proposal

To list the properties 73 The Boulevarde and 73A The Boulevarde, Dulwich Hill as items of local heritage significance under Marrickville Local Environmental Plan 2011.

Essential Details

What is Council’s role in the planning proposal?

  • Inner West Council is the proponent (initiator) of the planning proposal
  • The Department of Planning and Environment (DP&E) issued a Gateway determination for this planning proposal, dated 7 November 2018, requiring community engagement for the proposed LEP amendment. This means the DP&E have assessed the planning proposal and decided it has sufficient strategic merit to proceed to public exhibition.
  • Council is the Planning Proposal Authority. This means it is the body appointed to prepare and exhibit this planning proposal for community comment.
  • Council has not been 'delegated to make the plan' by the DP&E which means DPE is the decision making body in this case.
