3 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY A historic cultural heritage assessment (HCHA) has been undertaken of Western Avenue, Westmeadows by Archaeology at Tardis (AAT) (Map 1a). This HCHA has been sponsored by the land owners Transpacific Industries Group Limited (ACN ). The development (hereafter referred to as the activity) will comprise rezoning from to Comprehensive Development Zone (CDZ) and subdivision of the land into approximately 58 lots used for industrial purposes (Maps 1b & 1c) (see Section 3 for a detailed description). Heritage advisors Andrea Murphy (Project Director) and Stewart Thomson (Project Manager/ Archaeologist) of Archaeology At Tardis (ABN ) are the authors of this HCHA (No. 3624). Andrea Murphy holds a Masters Preliminary of Arts in historic archaeology and has over twenty years experience in all facets of cultural heritage management. Stewart Thomson has an Honours degree in archaeology and over five years experience in archaeology and heritage management (see Appendix 5 for summary CV s). The proposed industrial development and subdivision is located approximately 22km north of Melbourne in the municipality of Hume, with title plans and lot plans, 1 & 2 TP512682, 1 TP512635, and Res1 & 2 LP91468 (Figure 1)(Hereafter referred to the Activity Area). The total activity area measures approximately 75.6 hectares (Map 1a). The activity area is currently zoned Schedule 3 to the Farming Zone (FZ3) and Public Use Zone (PUZ1)(DSE Planning Scheme Online website 2013). However, it is only the eastern portion of the activity area between Victoria Street Road Reserve and Wright Street that is proposed for rezoning and subdivision (Map 1c). The eastern portion of the activity area is currently open paddock and the western portion is a Land Fill facility (Figure 6). In summary, the aims and objectives of this HCHA are to: Review historic cultural heritage databases, inventories, registers and/or other historical information depositories relevant to the activity area to establish potential historic heritage values; Establish a land-use history of the activity area to identify potential areas of historic cultural heritage value and/or significant disturbance that may have affected potential values; Collate relevant information relating to the history and/or historic figures associated with the activity area; Determine whether historic archaeological values exist, or potentially exist within the activity area; Determine the historic cultural heritage sensitivity of the activity area; and Devise appropriate management of any historic cultural heritage values. In the event that the Planning Scheme Amendment Application is approved and the development proceeds, the nature of the activity will include: Site Earth Works: vegetation clearing, topsoil stripping and stockpiling for reuse in landscaped areas, bulk excavation and filling. i

4 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Infrastructure Works: construction of roads, and infrastructure trenched underground service reticulation. Building works: construction of industrial warehouse, office and associated buildings on shallow pad and slab foundations. Landscaping & Wetlands: topsoiling, tree and shrub planting, wetland construction, and passive recreational facilities. This HCHA has been conducted in accordance with the Guidelines for Conducting Historic Archaeological Surveys (Department of Planning and Community Development [DPCD] 2008). All historic values have been assessed and managed with consideration for The Australian ICOMOS Charter for Places of Cultural Significance (The Burra Charter; Australia ICOMOS 1999) and Australian Historic Themes (Australian Heritage Commission 2001) standards. An application will be submitted to Hume City Council for rezoning and Planning Permits for Industrial subdivision. This HCHA will be submitted in support of the application to have the rezoning and planning permits approved. Background Information A search of relevant databases (Australian Heritage Database, Heritage Victoria Inventory, National Trust Register, Register of the National Estate, Shire of Hume Planning Scheme Heritage Overlay, and Victorian Heritage Register) resulted in the identification of three historic registrations, and one heritage overlay that have been previously recorded within the activity area comprising: Summary of Registered Historical Sites within the Activity Area Site No. & Name Site Type Location Moonee Ponds Ck 13 (D ) Victoria St Homestead H1 (H ) Silcrete/ conglomerate stone fence and boxthorn hedging Homestead / farm ruins Within activity area (Figure 6) Within activity area (Figure 6) Wright St H1 (H ) Homestead / farm ruins Partially within activity area (Figure 6) HO384 Farm hedges and dry stone walls Partially within activity area Off Victoria St and Wright St, Westmeadows (Figure 7) ii

5 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Ground Surface Survey (Section 8) The activity area was subject to pedestrian survey on 16 November 2009 by Archaeology At Tardis Pty Ltd Stewart Thomson (Project Manager), Ruth Rawlings and Amanda Rose (Assistant Archaeologists) and Wurundjeri Tribe Land and Compensation Cultural Heritage Council Inc (WTLCCHC) representative Bob Mullins, targeting the locations of previously recorded sites HO384, D , H , and H The survey was conducted in conjunction with investigation of Aboriginal cultural heritage values (CHMP 11038). The Landfill area (Western portion of the activity area) has been deemed as having no cultural heritage sensitivity or potential, due to the high disturbance caused by quarrying and landfill activities and was not subject to ground surface survey. At the time of the survey, ground surface visibility across the entire activity area was variable (Photographs 2, 3 & 4), though averaged around 10-30% per m 2. Evidence of each of the previously recorded historic sites was relocated during the site survey. The Landfill area (Western portion of the activity area) was not subject to ground surface survey due to having no potential for heritage. All historic sites recorded within the activity area are shown on Figures 6 & 7 and additional, more detailed discussion of all sites is presented in Section 8. Additional site survey was undertaken on 29 October 2013, 8 July 2014 and 21 January 2015 by Stewart Thomson (Project Manager/ Archaeologist - AAT) at the request of Transpacific Industries Group Limited to review the site conditions in order to update the Historic Cultural Heritage Assessment (HCHA 3624). The survey undertaken on 21 January 2015 concentrated on the condition and position of the boxthorn hedge relating to HO384 and H Survey Results All four sites (HO384, D , H , and H ) were relocated during the survey of the activity area. All of the sites within the activity area have been assessed as having very low overall cultural heritage significance based on the criteria outlined in the Burra Charter. The following table presents the historic cultural heritage significance for all sites evaluated with relation to this HCHA. The specific assessment methodology and criteria used that resulted in the historic cultural heritage significance rating is presented in Appendix 6. iii

7 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY CULTURAL HERITAGE MANAGEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS The management recommendations formulated for this HCHA aim to avoid and minimise harm to historic cultural heritage material and, where this is not possible, devise appropriate management measures. These recommendations are to be followed in conjunction with the recommendations made in approved Cultural Heritage Management Plan CHMP The following recommendations take into account the significant ground disturbing works associated with the activity (e.g. subsurface service installation, vegetation clearing, road construction, commercial development). It should be noted that all historic archaeological sites are protected under relevant Heritage Legislation (Appendix 4) whether they have been previously recorded or not. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the Sponsor to prevent disturbance to as yet undocumented historic sites/places as well as those already known and/or recorded. Where potential historic values are identified, those potential values must not be disturbed/harmed prior to being assessed by an appropriately qualified historic archaeologist and/or Heritage Victoria. In addition, all historic archaeological sites must be recorded in the Heritage Inventory (pursuant to Part 6, Section 121 of the Heritage Act 1995). Based on the assessment the following recommendations are made: Recommendation 1 D (Stone Fence & Boxthorn Hedging) This stone fence consists of silcrete and conglomerate stone nodules/ boulders placed in stonewall alignments through previous farming activities. During the clearing of the paddocks silcrete and basalt boulders were removed from their original position and used as foundation stones along the fence lines. Boxthorn was also planted along the fence line. Stone fence and boxthorn hedging D has been assessed as being of moderate historical significance and low scientific significance (Section 5.7 & Appendix 5). The activity will partially harm the stone fence (Approximately 60% retained) (Figure 11). Prior to works occurring erect sturdy fencing and highly visible signage restricting access to the drystone fence portion of D that is to be retained within the nature reserve. Fencing and signage should be erected between works areas and the place extent (Figure 11). Fences and signage must be sturdy enough to withstand stock or damage from other agents. Signs should be placed at appropriate intervals. A permit is also required from Hume City Council in order to demolish, remove or alter a dry stone wall constructed before 1940 (Hume City Council Planning Scheme 52.37). Boxthorn is a listed noxious weed and can be removed if required. v

9 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Recommendation 2 Consent to Damage H (Victoria St Homestead H1) This homestead ruin complex consists of a cobbled driveway, brick lined well, brick scatter with hand-made bricks, fences, and gate posts, boxthorn hedges, a scatter of ceramic & glass fragments, collapsed shed and farm machinery (Figure 6 & 8). Victoria Street Homestead H1 H has moderate historical significance and low scientific significance (Section 8.4 & Appendix 6). Prior to any works occurring within the extent of H , additional investigation is undertaken in exposing and recording structures and artefacts, within the historic complex, including further assessment of the house site, excavation of the brick well. A Consent to Uncover or Expose H from the Executive Director is required under the Heritage Act 1995 (Sections 127 to 129); A Consent to Damage H from the Executive Director will also be required under the Heritage Act 1995 (Sections 127 to 129) if the activity will damage the place. It should be noted that any Consent to Damage issued by the Executive Director may have attached conditions, such as additional historic and archaeological investigations; and A Permit is also required from Hume City Council in order to demolish, remove or alter a dry stone wall constructed before 1940 (Hume City Council Planning Scheme 52.37). Recommendation 3 Consent to Damage H (Wright St Farm Ruins H1) This homestead ruin complex consists of a brick lined well, brick scatter with hand-made bricks, fences, and gate posts, boxthorn hedges, a scatter of ceramic & glass fragments, and farm machinery. The majority of this site lies outside the activity area boundaries, however the boxthorn hedges are boundaries between both Victoria Street and Wright Street properties (Figure 6 & 9). Some farm equipment originally recorded as H is within the activity area (Feature 1, Figure 9). For any works to be conducted within any part of H within the activity area a Consent to Damage H from the Executive Director is required under the Heritage Act 1995 (Sections 127 to 129). It should be noted that any Consent to Damage issued by the Executive Director may have attached conditions, such as additional historic and archaeological investigations; A Permit is also required from Hume City Council in order to demolish, remove or alter a dry stone wall constructed before 1940 (Hume City Council Planning Scheme 52.37). vii

10 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Recommendation 4 HO384 (Farm Hedges & Dry Stone Walls off Victoria Street & Wright Street Westmeadows) HO384 (Figure 7) consists of the boxthorn boundary fence line between the Wright Street property and the activity area. Whilst HO384 is the boundary line between the two properties, as boxthorn is a listed noxious weed it is recommended that it be removed within the activity area if required. However, if any part of HO384 is to be damaged due to the activity a Permit will be required from Hume City Council (Hume City Council Planning Scheme ). Recommendation 5 Boxthorn Hedge Management (H , H & D ) Heritage Victoria advised no Consent to Damage will be required in relation to the management (trimming or removal) of the boxthorn hedges related to H , H and D (T Scott 2015, pers. comm., 22 January). Recommendation 6 Historic Heritage Induction Prior to commencing works, all employees and contractors actively involved in ground disturbance works during the activity must be made aware of the heritage issues. This induction should be conducted by a suitable qualified heritage advisor and must be organised and paid for by the proponent. A copy of this Historic Cultural Heritage Assessment (3624) must be on site or readily accessible at all times. Recommendation 7 Unexpected Historic Cultural Heritage Values In the event that unexpected or previously not recorded historic cultural sites/places are identified during the course of the activity, a suitable qualified heritage advisor should be called on site to assess the find and devise an appropriate management strategy made in consultation with Heritage Victoria and the proponent. In the activity area, unexpected historic cultural heritage values include any non-aboriginal artefact, structure or archaeological deposit 50 years or older in age (Heritage Act 1995).. viii

17 1 INTRODUCTION Industrial Development & Subdivision. Western Avenue, Westmeadows HCHA 3624 A historic cultural heritage assessment (HCHA) has been undertaken of Western Avenue, Westmeadows by Archaeology at Tardis (AAT) (Map 1a). This HCHA has been sponsored by the land owners Transpacific Industries Group Limited (ACN ). The development (hereafter referred to as the activity) will comprise rezoning from to Comprehensive Development Zone (CDZ) and subdivision of the land into approximately 58 lots used for industrial purposes (Maps 1b & 1c) (see Section 3 for a detailed description). Heritage advisors Andrea Murphy (Project Director) and Stewart Thomson (Project Manager/ Archaeologist) of Archaeology At Tardis (ABN ) are the authors of this HCHA (No. 3624). Andrea Murphy holds a Masters Preliminary of Arts in historic archaeology and has over twenty years experience in all facets of cultural heritage management. Stewart Thomson has an Honours degree in archaeology and over five years experience in archaeology and heritage management (see Appendix 5 for summary CV s). This HCHA has been conducted in accordance with the Guidelines for Conducting Historic Archaeological Surveys (Department of Planning and Community Development [DPCD] 2008). All historic values have been assessed and managed with consideration for The Australian ICOMOS Charter for Places of Cultural Significance (The Burra Charter; Australia ICOMOS 1999) and Australian Historic Themes (Australian Heritage Commission 2001) standards. A Notice of Intent to Carry Out an Archaeological Survey within the activity area was submitted to Heritage Victoria (HV) in September On 29 September 2009, HV provided Archaeology At Tardis Pty Ltd with the project reference number 3624 (Appendix 2).

Western Avenue, Westmeadows HCHA 3624 The activity area is located approximately 22km north of Melbourne in the municipality of Hume with title plans and lot plans, 1 & 2 TP512682, 1 TP512635, Res1 & 2 LP91468 and 2 LP92405 (Map 1a). Lot plan 2 LP91468 and title plan 1 TP make up the Tullamarine landfill site. The activity area is bounded by Western Avenue to the south, Wright Street to the east, and Moonee Ponds Creek to the north (Map 1a). The activity area is owned by Transpacific Industries Group Ltd and comprises a total of approximately 75.6 hectares, including the portion of the Melbourne Water owned Tarnuk Reserve. The activity will comprise the rezoning (CDZ) and subdivision of the land into approximately 58 lots used for industrial purposes (Maps 1b & 1c). The activity area is currently zoned Schedule 3 to the Farming Zone (FZ3) and Public Use Zone (PUZ1)(DSE Planning Scheme Online website 2013). In the event that the Planning Scheme Amendment Application is approved and the development proceeds, the nature of the activity will include: Site Earth Works: vegetation clearing, topsoil stripping and stockpiling for reuse in landscaped areas, bulk excavation and filling. Infrastructure Works: construction of roads, and infrastructure trenched underground service reticulation. Building works: construction of industrial warehouse, office and associated buildings on shallow pad and slab foundations. Landscaping & Wetlands: topsoiling, tree and shrub planting, wetland construction, and passive recreational facilities. Construction associated with the activity will consist of various methods and include both excavating the ground surface and covering areas with fill; both of which will, or have potential to disturb the ground surface to varying depths. The deepest potential disturbance could include the undergrounding of physical infrastructure (e.g. sewer, water, gas) to a maximum of 3m. An application will be submitted to Hume City Council for rezoning and Planning Permits for Industrial subdivision. This HCHA will be submitted in support of the application to have the rezoning and planning permits approved. Archaeology At Tardis cultural heritage advisors 7
