CLOSED: The opportunity to comment has concluded but the public exhibition information is still available for viewing.


A report on the results of the public exhibition of the Yarrabin Heritage Planning Proposal will be prepared for Council's consideration and adoption in early 2021.


On 12 August 2020 Council resolved to proceed with a Planning Proposal to amend the Wingecarribee Local Environmental Plan (WLEP) 2010 by adding land at 32 Kangaloon Road, Bowral, (Lot 40 DP 862808) as a new heritage item and extending the adjacent Bowral Heritage Conservation Area. The intent of the proposed change to WLEP 2010 is to recognise the heritage significance of the property known as ‘Yarrabin’ by adding it to the list of heritage items in Schedule 5 of the WLEP 2010 and extending the eastern boundary of Bowral Conservation Area to include this property.
