Help to save re­gion’s his­tory

Isis Town and Country - - News -

RES­I­DENTS are en­cour­aged to “play their part” to en­sure a di­verse range of places with key his­tor­i­cal themes or value are ap­pro­pri­ately recog­nised as part of the draft Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil Plan­ning Scheme.

In the draft plan re­leased last year, 17 places of lo­cal her­itage sig­nif­i­cance were iden­ti­fied and in­cluded as part of the her­itage and neigh­bour­hood char­ac­ter over­lay.

More re­cently, the coun­cil, with the as­sis­tance of con­sul­tants Con­verge Her­itage and Com­mu­nity, has com­pleted a lo­cal her­itage study that rec­om­mends a fur­ther 53 lo­cal her­itage places be added.

The coun­cil’s Plan­ning and Devel­op­ment spokesman Ross Sommerfeld said the pro­posed ad­di­tion of th­ese places of her­itage sig­nif­i­cance was im­por­tant to en­sure that places en­rich­ing the char­ac­ter of the com­mu­nity were ap­pro­pri­ately recog­nised and pro­tected.

Among the pro­posed ad­di­tional list­ings that are be­ing con­sid­ered by the coun­cil are the Bund­aberg Rail­way Sta­tion, the Gin Gin Post Of­fice, Niel­son Park and the Doolbi-Hor­ton War Me­mo­rial.

A tem­plate sub­mis­sion form is avail­able on the BRC web­site. Sub­mis­sions close to­mor­row.
