What we're doing

We invite your feedback on a proposal to list 9 heritage items of the modern movement in the Sydney Local Environmental Plan 2012.

The proposed heritage items are:

  • Sydney Masonic Centre, 279–283 Castlereagh Street, Sydney
  • former Sydney County Council Building, 552A–570 George Street, Sydney
  • St Peter Julian’s Catholic Church and Monastery, 637–645 George Street, Haymarket
  • Town Hall House, 456 Kent Street, Sydney
  • William Bland Centre, 229–231 Macquarie Street, Sydney
  • MLC Centre, 19–35 Martin Place, Sydney
  • former Liverpool and London and Globe building, 62 Pitt Street, Sydney
  • former Horwitz House, 398–402 Sussex Street, Haymarket
  • Earth Mother play sculpture, Yurong Parkway, Cook and Phillip Park, Sydney

These items are proposed for listing to recognise their significance as part of the modern movement of architecture and art in Sydney that were designed  from 1945 to 1975. 

In planning for Sydney’s sustainable development, listing identifies those places with heritage value worth retaining for the benefit of current and future generations. This exhibition is your opportunity to have your say.

An update to the heritage map shading for St Andrew’s House at 464–480 Kent Street, Sydney, is also proposed.

This planning proposal will not change any other planning controls for these sites.
