The Collingwood Historical Society has had an active involvement in the heritage planning for the City of Yarra and previously for the City of Collingwood (Abbotsford, Clifton Hill and Collingwood) over the past 25 years or so. We were members of the committee for the City of Collingwood Urban Conservation Study by Andrew Ward in the 1980s. We have been members of a number of the City of Yarra's heritage review committees. We are deeply concerned that the historical and heritage value of the area be respected for the benefit of future generations, both the natural heritage of the Yarra River and the built heritage.
Below is a list of some of the planning and heritage sites we have been involved with in recent years. More information about the proposed developments may be found on the Yarra Council website. Some sites are also on the Victorian Heritage Register.
