Heritage approval sought for Yallum Park upgrade

The owners of the historic Yallum Park homestead at Penola are seeking planning permission for certain repair and maintenance activities.

Approval is necessary as Yallum Park is a State Heritage place.

Its eaves and external gutters need to be replaced and facias repaired.

The magnificent Victorian mansion is said to be the best-preserved Victorian house of its grandeur in Australia.

The next public tours will be held on January 28 in association with Rob’s Horse-drawn Carriages.

The Yallum Park repairs are among dozens of planning applications lodged with Wattle Range Council since the beginning of last month.

Most applications are routine but others will spark interest.

For example, planning permission is being sought to erect a piece of public artwork to honour the pioneering women of Southend.

The community arts project dubbed Alberto’s Dream received a major boost last month when it received a grant from Arts SA.

The owners of a property on Beach Road at Beachport are looking to construct an in-ground swimming pool.

There are plans submitted to convert an existing storage building at Glenroy to a hemp processing facility with associated storage, office and amenities block.

Licensing Court permission as well as planning permission will be necessary for an historic Penola building to be used as a cellar door outlet.

A vacant block of shops at Nangwarry is set to be converted to four flats with four carports.

The Millicent Show Society is looking to erect a maintenance shed alongside the Gordon Memorial Oval at the Millicent Showgrounds.
