RBA was commissioned by the City of Greater Geelong to undertake a review of potential heritage sites identified in the Lara area within the Outer Areas Heritage Study prepared in 1998-2000 by Dr David Rowe and Ms Lorraine Huddle of Authentic Heritage Services. Most of the sites identified in the study are not currently subject to specific heritage protection.

Although it has only been 10 years since the study was undertaken, alterations to buildings had occurred and in some cases buildings had been demolished. The purpose of the review was to determine which of the sites were still worthy of individual listing within the heritage overlay. The review will potentially lead to a planning scheme amendment for Council’s consideration.

The sites consist of cottages, houses, churches, memorials, commercial buildings and ruins.
