Lacey Street Design Guidelines

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

What are we doing?

Lacey Street is a unique place possessing original housing stock constructed between 1900 and 1920. The street has a narrow road reserve with a collection of intact federation-style buildings. Lacey Street is one of few streets with an intact single storey streetscape in close proximity to the central business district.

The area is distinctive due to the predominance of dwellings in the Federation Cottage and Federation Georgian style of architecture. The cohesive streetscape is characterised by small dwellings, which have a two room presentation to the street and feature bull nose and skillion verandahs. The dwellings have medium pitched roof forms, with highly visible chimneys and feature simple window arrangements of single sash and casement windows.

The design guidelines were prepared to provide developers and landowners with a set of guidelines and direction that reflect the City’s expectations with respect to the protection and development of this street.

The current design guidelines need to be reviewed and reformed so that they can be clearly implemented to deliver the objectives.

What do we need?

The purpose of this consultation is to understand the community sentiment regarding the conservation of the streetscape and to understand the most important elements of the streetscape.

You can access the current design guidelines here.

Next Steps

We will be at the corner of Lacey Street and Brewer Street from 5:00pm – 5:45pm on Wednesday 25th May 2022 to discuss the guidelines and hear your thoughts.

Following this consultation period Administration will report the outcomes of the consultation to Council along with draft amended design guidelines or character street guidelines based on the comments received. Council will be asked to endorse: the guidelines; and comments (including Administrations response to the comments), for the purpose of advertising the draft design guidelines - At this time you will have another opportunity to comment.
