Council approved the proposal to heritage list 82–84 Dixon Street, Haymarket.

View decision

We invite your feedback on a planning proposal to list 82–84 Dixon Street, Haymarket as a local heritage item to recognise its significance as part of the Chinese-Australian heritage of Sydney. This includes the former Kwong War Chong & Co building and its interiors and contents.

A local heritage listing identifies places with heritage value worthy of retention for the benefit of current and future generations. 

Where the building and its contents are heritage-listed, any heritage impacts of new uses and associated alterations, removal or relocation of listed features are assessed through a development application process. 

If the building is heritage-listed in line with this planning proposal, the landowner will have the opportunity to seek a heritage floor space award for 84 Dixon Street. 

This planning proposal will not change any other planning controls for this site.
