City look­ing for lost his­tory

Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

CITY of Cock­burn is call­ing for hid­den his­toric gems to be put for­ward for con­sid­er­a­tion in its lo­cal govern­ment in­ven­tory (LGI) and her­itage list.

Re­cent ad­di­tions to the list in­clude a World War II army camp in Bibra Lake and the Mun­ster wall and ru­ins, sig­nif­i­cant for their as­so­ci­a­tion with Cock­burn’s mar­ket gar­den his­tory.

Act­ing plan­ning and de­vel­op­ment ser­vices di­rec­tor An­drew Trosic said the com­pi­la­tion of the first lo­cal govern­ment in­ven­tory in 1998 iden­ti­fied the ma­jor­ity of places of her­itage sig­nif­i­cance in Cock­burn, al­though he was sure there were more to be added.

“The City’s an­nual up­date of the LGI in­cludes a call for nom­i­na­tions of new places from the com­mu­nity as there is al­ways the pos­si­bil­ity that there are her­itage places that have not yet been iden­ti­fied,” he said.

“This may be be­cause they have been mod­i­fied or be­cause they are not vis­i­ble to the pub­lic.” Nom­i­na­tions close Fe­bru­ary 11. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www. cock­burn.wa.gov.au/her­itage.
