Being included on the Heritage List doesn't automatically prohibit property demolition or development. However, if you happen to own a property listed, and you wish to make changes to it, you'll need to submit a development application to the City for evaluation. During this process, the City will carefully consider the property's heritage values alongside broader planning requirements. This ensures that any modifications or developments respect our heritage while accommodating necessary changes.
The Local Heritage Survey serves as recognition of a place's heritage value, but it doesn't impose any development limitations.
A section of Rivervale (map below) is within an area that has historical importance as one first areas developed for public housing by the Government. Please note this historical value applies to the broader area bound by Newey Street, Orrong Road, Roberts Road, and Acton Avenue, and does not apply to a specific property.
Therefore individual properties do not hold any historical significance and there are no development implications.
