Iconic Kangaroo Point’s heritage-listed Lamb House is open for public consultation as it will undergo an amendment project conducted by Brisbane City Council.
The first draft will be available from Monday 16 November and, according to City Planning Chair Cr Krista Adams, includes zoning changes that would safeguard the heritage-listed property from further development.
“Unfortunately, over the years the owner of Lamb House has let the property fall into disrepair to the dismay of Council and Brisbane residents who want to see it restored to its former glory,” Cr Adams said.
“These changes to the City Plan are another crucial step towards protecting it for future generations.
“While the property is listed on the Queensland Heritage Register, we want to introduce further measures, so the original character of Lamb House is retained on this property for years to come, regardless of its dilapidated condition.”
Four large weeping figs on the property’s Leopard Street boundary will also be included in the draft City Plan amendment. Kangaroo Point was the city’s first residential suburb, with Lamb House one of its oldest surviving homes.
“Residents have been incredibly passionate about saving Lamb House, and Council is now asking them to have their say on its future by lodging a submission or completing an online survey before Sunday 13 December 2020,” she said.
