Local Heritage Survey of the Triangle Precinct

The City of Subiaco has reviewed the Local Heritage Survey (LHS) of the Triangle Precinct and is now seeking comment on the draft document. The Triangle Precinct is the area bounded by Rokeby Road, Churchill Avenue and Thomas Street in Subiaco (see map), and boasts a very high concentration of heritage buildings and character value streetscapes.

The purpose of an LHS is to:

  • identify and record places that are, or may become, of cultural heritage significance in its district
  • assist the local government in making and implementing decisions that are in harmony with cultural heritage values
  • provide a cultural and historical record of its district
  • provide an accessible public record of places of cultural heritage significance to its district
  • assist the local government in preparing a heritage list or list of heritage areas under a local planning scheme.

The LHS is not an instrument for development control and the planning scheme provisions currently applicable remain.

Project Background

At its Ordinary Council Meeting (OCM) on 17 March 2020 (Item C3) Council resolved to review the LHS in the Triangle Precinct.

As part of the review process the City sought Expressions of Interest to join a Heritage Reference Group (HRG). The group met during July-December 2020 to provide valuable input to the project and feedback on the draft LHS as it was prepared.

The places already on the LHS were reviewed and the City placed a call for nominations for new places to be included. The nomination period closed in November 2020.

At its OCM on 23 February 2021 Council resolved to endorse the draft LHS for public consultation.

Overall, 185 individual places and four heritage areas are proposed to be included in the draft LHS for the Triangle Precinct. This includes 152 places from the 2002 LHS (15 of which are on the Heritage List), four heritage areas (all of which are designated under the Local Planning Scheme) and 33 new places. Two places are proposed to be removed from the LHS as they have been demolished.

How can I be involved?

Public consultation on the draft LHS is now closed. The City values your feedback - thank you to everyone who participated.

Consultation closed at 5pm on Friday 16 April 2021.

Following the public advertising process, Council will consider the submissions received and any recommended modifications before making a final decision.
