Her­itage as­sess­ment for Kwinana se­niors’ cen­tre

Southern Telegraph - - News - Ash­wini Saseedaran

Kwinana Se­nior Cit­i­zens Cen­tre will un­dergo as­sess­ments to deem its suit­abil­ity as a her­itage-listed build­ing as part of the City’s Lo­cal Plan­ning Strat­egy process next year.

Cost­ing about $40,000 to com­plete, the review is set to be car­ried out by pro­fes­sional her­itage con­sul­tants to de­ter­mine its sig­nif­i­cance with re­gards to aes­thetic, his­toric, re­search and so­cial value.

Mayor Carol Adams said the coun­cil recog­nised sites such as the build­ing at Lot 1040, 17 Har­ley Way, Me­d­ina, cur­rently oc­cu­pied by the Kwinana Se­nior Cit­i­zens, needed to be con­sid­ered with a fur­ther review of the Mu­nic­i­pal Her­itage In­ven­tory.

“Any review of the City’s MHI will be un­der­taken in ac­cor­dance with the guide­lines for the Review of Mu­nic­i­pal Her­itage In­ven­to­ries pre­pared by the Her­itage Coun­cil of West­ern Aus­tralia,” she said.

“It will also be in­formed by in­put from a range of stake­hold­ers in­clud­ing own­ers, com­mu­nity groups, ad­vi­sory com­mit­tees and lo­cal gov­ern­ment of­fi­cers. Rar­ity, rep­re­sen­ta­tive­ness and con­di­tion will be used to de­ter­mine the level of sig­nif­i­cance.”

The her­itage as­set up­date is aimed at re­spect­ing and pro­mot­ing Kwinana’s unique her­itage.
