This overlay seeks to retain and manage identified historic character values of specific residential and business areas. Each overlay is supported by a historic character statement identifying the key attributes or qualities of the area for protection, retention and enhancement. Assessment of proposals for activities, development and modifications to places within historic character areas will be considered against the historic character statement. Controls have been placed on use, development and demolition of buildings to manage change in these areas. The level of protection varies according to the intent of the overlay and may be more restrictive than the underlying zone.
