Palace build­ing ban­ners re­moved

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE ban­ners on the Palace Me­mo­rial Build­ing have been tem­po­rar­ily re­moved.

Isis Dis­trict Res­i­dents and Ratepay­ers raised con­cerns at their March meet­ing about the ban­ners’ ef­fect on the her­itage value of the build­ing.

Com­mu­nity ser­vices spokes­woman Cr Judy Peters said the ban­ners were erected to “pro­mote tourist at­trac­tions within Childers and in­crease vis­i­tor num­bers in the area”.

“Coun­cil has a gen­eral ex­emp­tion cer­tifi­cate from the Depart­ment of En­vi­ron­ment and Her­itage Pro­tec­tion which has determined that the aes­thetic of the build­ing would not be com­pro­mised by place­ment of the ban­ner,” Cr Peters said.

“The ban­ners were re­moved by coun­cil to al­low for sched­uled paint­ing and main­te­nance work to be car­ried out.

“A de­ci­sion re­gard­ing their re­place­ment will be determined by coun­cil once it has had an op­por­tu­nity to meet and dis­cuss the mat­ter fur­ther.”
