The Kelly Homestead Site Greta Road Glenrowan West.
Over the last decade I have tried unsuccessfully and on many occasions, to have Benalla Rural City amend their Planning Maps to accurately reflect the correct location of the Heritage Listing of the site.
The Heritage overlay is meant to protect the Kelly Homestead Site Greta Road Glenrowan West,
but it is wrongly identified in a number of ways and
Benalla Rural City have not appeared to be concerned at their Heritage Overlay technical errors.
The first map is to be found on:
http://planningschemes.dpcd.vic.gov.au/benalla/maps/benalla12ho.pdf a part copy of this map is supplied below:
The map shows "HO24" in the wrong location (to the West) namely on Property 57,
whilst Mrs. Kellys actual heritage homestead site is located next door on 57A (to the East).
The property numbers 57 and 57A that I supply are to be found on:
http://planningschemes.dpcd.vic.gov.au/benalla/maps/benalla12zn.pdf a part copy of this is supplied below.
shown on the map above is really the identifier for the old Benalla Water Supply Depot,
Riverview Road, Benalla,
and not the Kelly Homestead Site Greta Road Glenrowan West.
Details of this may be seen on http://planningschemes.dpcd.vic.gov.au/benalla/ordinance/43_01s_bena.pdf
The actual identifier for the Kelly Homestead Site Greta Road Glenrowan West is HO37.
This HO37 listing is meant to protect -
all fencing, bridges and outbuilding remains at the Kelly Homestead Site Greta Road Glenrowan West:
But as one can see above the site is geographically incorrectly identified and also incorrectly labeled for Heritage listing.
Now whilst Heritage identifier HO24 for the old Benalla Water Supply Depot in Riverview Road, Benalla,
is possibly listed correctly on the above pdf document it is intimated that it is also included
on the Victorian Heritage Register under the Heritage Act 1995.
Whilst, the Kelly Homestead Site Greta Road Glenrowan West is identified as HO37 on the above pdf document,
it appears that it is not listed on the Victorian Heritage Register under the Heritage Act 1995.
Who knows why this has occurred.
It may be that the Kelly Family of Greta Road Glenrowan West were not then the flavour of the month,
but with all the attention to Ned Kelly today things may change.
