Highgate Design Guidelines

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

What are we doing?

In 1995, 58 lots within the area bounded by Smith Street, Broome Street and Wright Street were subdivided. As a condition of the State Government's subdivision approval design guidelines were prepared.

The design guidelines addressed elements including: the interface to existing dwellings in the locality and the streetscape; height and bulk of buildings; setbacks; and car parking.

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.

The current design guidelines can be accessed by clicking here.

Next Steps

We will be on the corner of Broome & Wright Street at Jack Marks Reserve from 4:00pm – 4:45pm 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.
