Blanket Heritage Splits City
Updated: Mar 7
BLANKET heritage zones may be applied to Bayswater and Maylands town centres.
Dozens more individual properties have also been added to Bayswater council’s heritage list despite many owners saying they were not alerted.
Huge dissent preceded the vote at Bayswater council’s February 25 meeting, with one deputation after another calling for the Baysie town centre heritage area to be scrapped.
Councillors were also divided, with Michelle Sutherland saying the blanket heritage zones had already scared some investors out of town.
