Hurstville City Council commences heritage review

Posted 22 November 2012 by (Hurstville News)

This project is being jointly managed by Council and a Heritage Study Working Group (HSWG), which comprises members of the community, under the guidance of a specialist Heritage Consultant.

Mayor of Hurstville, Cr Jack Jacovou said the review is a NSW Government requirement.

“Council is currently updating its planning controls for the City of Hurstville and as part of this process, it is required to review its heritage items,” he said.

“At this early stage, Council is contacting owners of potential items which have either been nominated by the heritage consultant, the community or by the community-based heritage working group,” he said.

“Council is seeking comments from all property owners on the draft list as well as any further information on the history of the item, which may not yet be part of the public record.

“Once submissions are received from this initial consultation, a report will be referred to Council in February 2013 for its consideration.

“A further round of consultation will be undertaken once Council has considered its position.”

Mayor Jacovou strongly advised that no decisions had been made on any properties which may be under review.

“I strongly encourage the community to comment on the proposed listing by 14 December 2012 when submissions close,” he said.

“Residents can either book a 30 minute meeting with the heritage consultant and Council officers or write to the General Manager, PO Box 205, Hurstville BC 1481 or email: strategicplanning@hurstville.nsw.gov.au .”
