Woodend, Lancefield, Macedon and Mount Macedon Heritage Study

Council has recently commenced the preparation of the Woodend, Lancefield, Macedon and Mount Macedon Heritage Study.

The need to complete heritage studies for our townships was identified as an action in the Council’s adopted Heritage Strategy 2014 - 2018.

To assist with the identification of potentially heritage significant sites, Council officers analysed previous heritage studies and identified approximately 201 sites across the Shire that are not protected by the Heritage Overlay or included on the state or national heritage register.

Council allocated funding in the 2017-2018 budget for the preparation of a Woodend, Lancefield, Macedon and Mount Macedon Heritage Study.

Preparation of the study is currently underway, with an appointed consultant undertaking a review of existing background documentation and site visits. Owners of properties proposed to be included in the Heritage Study will be notified at a later stage in the project.
