Heritage Update and Stone Wall Study

Consultation has concluded

Closed 22 November 2017

The City has identified three more sites -- Carson’s Cottage and the former speedway site in Jandakot and Mr Crossman’s house ruins near Lake Coogee -- for inclusion on our local heritage register. The update includes other proposed changes, and a stone wall study.

It's part of our annual update of the Local Government Inventory (“LGI’), and we are seeking the input of the community to assist in this process.

Local Government Inventories can best be described as 'local heritage registers', identifying the places and areas that are of cultural heritage significance in the local area.

Local Government Inventories can best be described as 'local heritage registers', identifying the places and areas that are of cultural heritage significance in the local area.

They recognise the importance of heritage places to the local community and provide a record of the places that are an important part of the history of the area. All local governments are required to compile a LGI under the Heritage of WA Act 1990.

The 2017 update has two parts:

PART ONE: Update to Local Government Inventory – Proposed addition of new places and modification to existing place records.

PART TWO: Draft Stone Wall Study – Examination of stone walls with possible heritage value in the City of Cockburn (Munster and Beeliar) with draft recommendations.

Community Consultation

Plans and documents explaining the Stone Wall study were available to view up to and including 22 November 2017.

At its meeting on 14 June 2018 (OCM Minutes 14/06/18) Council resolved to adopt the Stone Wall and Ruins Heritage Study and include the identified stone walls and ruins in the new 'Historic Sites' section of the Local Government Inventory.
