MORE than 70 places have been identified for their historical significance in the Corangamite Heritage Study.
The Corangamite Heritage Study final report will be presented at the Corangamite Shire Council meeting tonight in Derrinallum.
If approved, the council will move to get authorisation from the Minister for Planning Matthew Guy to introduce a heritage overlay for 76 places and 10 precincts
The precincts feature town centres throughout the shire, including Cobden, Derrinallum, Lismore, Noorat, Pomborneit, Skipton and Terang.
The 76 individual places are made up of residential buildings, such as homesteads, along with commercial buildings, churches, halls, schools, hospitals and bridges.
Of those places, eight have been identified as having historical significance to Victoria, including Camp Cooriemungle, Mt Noorat Homestead complex, the former rabbit canning factory in Pirron Yallock, rocket shed in Port Campbell and Timboon high school.
The report which will be presented to council notes that there was consultation with local historical societies and individual property owners.
The heritage study began in 2009 and included almost 600 places for investigation.
The council will also vote on a planning application for five single-storey houses in Camperdown.
The plans consist of two three-bedroom homes and three two-bedroom homes.
There was one objection to the planning application based on the zoning of the land, which is commercial, potential noise and the claim there was enough residential land in Camperdown.
The report, which will be presented to council, states that the proposal increases the diversity of housing choice within Camperdown.
The 7pm Corangamite Shire Council meeting will be held at the Derrinallum Community Hall.
