Update on the reclassification of 50 Dyson Street

News Update 15 December 2021

At its 14 December meeting, Council voted against the reclassification of the Church of St Martin in the Field and Durbridge Hall at 50 Dyson Street Kensington on the City's Local Heritage Inventory. 

An application was received by property owners to reclassify the site from category B (considerable significance) to category D (little significance). 

Sites classified as category A or B on the City's Local Heritage Inventory are included on the Heritage List. Reclassification would have seen the place removed from the City's Heritage List. Properties on the Heritage List are protected under the Planning and Development Act 2005 from being demolished, altered or modified.

Before making a decision, the City sought feedback from nearby property owners, residents and the wider community. Feedback was open from Wednesday 20 October until 4pm, Wednesday 10 November 2021 with 247 submissions received. 

Minutes from the meeting will be available on the Council Meetings page from 5pm Friday 17 December.
