Feedback sought on 50 Dyson Street, Kensington - Memorial Church of St Martin in the Field and Durbridge Hall

An application has been received by the City from the owners of the property at 50 Dyson Street, Kensington, to reclassify the place from being of ‘considerable significance’ (Management Category B) to ‘little significance’ (Management Category D), as described in the City’s Local Heritage Inventory (further information about the classifications is outlined in the Background section below).

This request, if approved, would see the place (50 Dyson Street) removed from the City’s Heritage List and it being reclassified to 'little significance' (Management Category D). This would allow the City to make a decision on a separate application that has been received for the demolition of the buildings on the site.

Tell us what you think about the reclassification?

In response to this request, the City is seeking feedback from nearby property owners, residents and the wider City of South Perth community about the reclassification. The feedback along with the heritage reports and a structural report will be considered as part of a report that will be presented to Council for their consideration and decision making.

How can I provide my feedback?

Hard copy surveys are available at the City's Civic Centre and South Perth and Manning libraries.

Feedback closed at 4pm, Wednesday 10 November 2021.

    The City's Local Heritage Inventory classifications

    All places that are considered to be of heritage value are included on the City’s Local Heritage Inventory (LHI). The LHI assigns each place a management category of either A, B C or D depending on the heritage value of the place. Those places with a management category of A or B are considered to have the greatest heritage value and are also included on the City’s Heritage List. Places included on the Heritage List are protected under the Planning and Development Act 2005 from being demolished, altered or modified in any way unless approval has been granted by the City.

    As part of the most recent review of the City’s LHI undertaken in 2018, the Memorial Church of St Martin in the Field and Durbridge Hall located at 50 Dyson Street, Kensington, were assessed and determined to be of considerable significance and therefore assigned management category B. As such this place was included on the City’s Heritage List and is protected. Since this time the church has been deconsecrated and the property sold by the Anglican Diocesan.

    Application for demolition of 50 Dyson Street, previous advertising and feedback

    In June 2021 the City received an application for the demolition of the Memorial Church of St Martin in the Field and Durbridge Hall. This application was advertised to the community between 2 July and 5 August 2021. Following assessment of the application and consideration of the submissions received, the City determined that it could not support the application for demolition while the place was included on the City’s Heritage List. In response, the owners of the property have submitted a request to reclassify the place from management category B to management category D and subsequently remove the place from the City’s Heritage List.

    Documents submitted with the reclassification request

    A heritage assessment was prepared by Griffiths Architects and a structural report by Quoin Consulting, both of which were submitted by the applicant with the reclassification request. The City subsequently engaged Hocking Heritage and Architecture to review these reports and provide a report with comments.
