In a bid to further protect Hurlstone Park’s rich history, a number of extra areas and items are being proposed to be heritage listed.

City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor, Khal Asfour, said more than 250 people commented on the Hurlstone Park Heritage Assessment Study in 2017, with 90 per cent (more than 220) supporting what was recommended by Council.

"However, we are proposing some adjustments as a result of considering resident feedback," he said.

"In the interest of maximising transparency with the community, we will go back out for consultation on these further changes."

At last night’s Council meeting, the City of Canterbury Bankstown proposed:

  • Two additional new Heritage Conservation Areas (HCAs) – Railway Street and Starkey Street;
  • Expansion and consolidation of previously proposed HCAs
  • 12 new properties be recommended for heritage listing;
  • Six draft heritage items no longer be recommended for listing;
  • Draft Tennent Parade HCA recommended to no longer proceed; and
  • Height reductions be applied for HCA identified properties in the town centre - down from 14 metres to 11 metres north of the railway line and 11 metres to nine metres south of the railway line.

In addition, Council intends to amend its Heritage Incentives Policy, to allow for waiving of DA fees for the 35 draft heritage items proposed.

Along with re-exhibiting the amended Hurlstone Park Planning Proposal for public comment. Council will also make changes to the Canterbury Development Control Plan.

There are currently more than 230 permanent heritage items listed in Canterbury-Bankstown.
