The Council has engaged heritage consultants, Extent Heritage (Hobart), to undertake a study and community engagement project to identify, protect and manage the heritage resources which are important to our community. The study will look at buildings, precincts, landscapes, archaeological sites, parks and gardens and individual trees of local significance.
Places of State cultural heritage significance are currently recorded on the Tasmanian Heritage Register, kept by the Tasmanian Heritage Council. It may be that some places transition onto a local heritage register.
Consultant, Dr Jennifer Jones -Travis, anticipates that through a public consultation process, the local community will also assist with the identification of significant sites for further research and possible listing as items of local heritage significance.
To participate and assist the consultants with their task, we encourage the community to complete the survey available by clicking on the green button below.Cultural Heritage Study - Survey
