Banyule Homestead- another victory

Banyule Homestead (a)_PeterCrone

Excellent news! VCAT today upheld Banyule Council’s refusal to grant a permit for a function centre at Banyule Homestead in Heidelberg.  The VCAT decision highlighted the significance of Banyule Homestead and the many problems with parking, noise etc. engendered by the operation of a function centre in a quiet neighbourhood area.  The neighbours really took the running on presenting a well-founded, disciplined campaign, and the Council support was staunch. They are certainly to be congratulated.

    Banyule has some lovely historic buildings which need to be preserved at all costs. As long as we can still visit on a Sunday afternoon.
