Draft Frankston Heritage Gap Review 2020

We are seeking your feedback on the draft Frankston Heritage Gap Review 2020. 

Frankston community have told us that they value the positive contribution heritage places make to the historical context and identity of Frankston and its suburbs; and the role that heritage makes in contributing to the importance of place and cultural connectedness.

Frankston’s history has been recorded in a number of Heritage Studies undertaken by Council and these studies have supported the protection of heritage places in the City.

Protection and preservation of heritage places or areas is an ongoing responsibility for Council and since the completion of the last heritage study in 2014, a number of buildings and sites were nominated for further investigation as part of Stage 1 of the “Heritage Gap Review”.

Over 100 properties were nominated in Stage 1.  An investigation of these properties was undertaken by heritage consultant Peter Andrew Barrett, who provided recommendations for places considered worthy of further investigation.

Following investigation, of the 100 properties originally nominated, only 32 places were recommended for further investigation to determine ‘local heritage significance’.

GJM Heritage Consultants were engaged to review the 32 places and found that 23 places were of local heritage significance and warranted further consideration for heritage overlay protection in the Frankston Planning Scheme. 

GJM Heritage Consultants have prepared the following documents:

Draft Frankston City Council Gap Heritage Review (Stage 2), Volume 1 (3MB) – This document provides the background to the study, methodology, findings and recommendations.

Draft Frankston City Council Gap Heritage Review (Stage 2), Volume 2 (38MB) – This document includes detailed Citations and Statements of Significance and recommendations for each property.
