 599-605 Swanston Street, Carlton – the former Beaurepaire Tyre Building
This re-developed site at the NW corner of Swanston and Queensberry Streets provides one recent example of the INEFFECTIVENESS of these DDO61 Heritage provisions.

99 Cardigan Street
This place, although likely to be of more recent construction than the C Graded Heritage Places to the immediate north, should have been included in a Heritage Overlay; it wasn’t.

This Heritage Place is located in the HO1 Heritage Overlay and was graded “F” in 1987, then “B” in 2016 but is UNGRADED in the proposed 2017 Heritage Places Inventory.
