It is a requirement under the Heritage Act 2018 that local governments compile and maintain a list of places that are or may become, of cultural heritage significance. This list was called a Municipal Inventory (MI), it is now called a Local Heritage Survey (LHS). The Shire of Mundaring’s MI was adopted over 26 years ago in 1997, with a further review in 2005. Some of these sites are no longer standing and others have been assessed and need to be added to the LHS.
The Shire has engaged consultants to conduct a review of culturally significant places and they are inviting the community to nominate sites that may be eligible for inclusion on the Survey.
You can submit a nomination for a place or building to be considered for inclusion in the Local Heritage Survey.
You can do this on the Engage Mundaring page on the Shire’s website and have until the 22nd of September to do so. Currently, there are three such submissions.
A small committee of locals will be invited to be involved in the selection process. To be on this panel, we hope that the Shire will request relevant qualifications or experience in Heritage and History.
Here are photographs of buildings that we have lost over the years because of age, insect infestation, or change of use.
It is important that we conserve our old buildings. Please think seriously about logging on to 'Engage Mundaring' and putting your nominations forward..
