Join a heritage walk in Maldon’s commercial area

Beautiful historic buildings in Maldon.

Thursday 27 February 2020

Mount Alexander Shire Council is inviting community members to join a heritage walk around Maldon’s commercial area in March to help them better understand the Maldon Design Guidelines.

Council’s Heritage Advisor will lead two walks through Maldon’s commercial area to illustrate some of the features in the town that make it historically and culturally significant.

The walk will help people better understand the need for the Maldon Design Guidelines and the proposed changes in the updated version.

The walks will be held from 3.30pm to 4.00pm on Tuesday 3 March, and Tuesday 10 March.

To register your interest in the walk along with preferred time and date, contact Council’s Strategic Planning Unit by email to strategicplanning@mountalexander.vic.gov.au or call 5471 1815.

The Maldon Design Guidelines provide detailed design criteria for new development in Maldon’s heritage precincts and areas affected by the Significant Landscape Overlay Schedules 1 and 3.

The guidelines aim to encourage buildings that complement the historic streetscape character of Maldon and do not dominate or compete with the historically significant place.

Council recently updated the guidelines, and the draft is on public exhibition until Thursday 2 April 2020.

Read the draft guidelines on Council’s website or in hard copy at the Visitor Information Centre at 93 High St, Maldon.

Council is also holding a second drop-in session, from 4.00pm to 7.30pm on Wednesday 18 March, at Maldon Community Centre on Francis Street.
