2020 Heritage Priority Projects
Published on 06 October 2021
Council is currently working on three heritage projects to identify and protect heritage in the municipality. Heritage experts have been engaged to investigate different heritage aspects and complete the three projects described below.
Heritage Precinct Update
There are a number of existing heritage precincts in the municipality that contain contributory buildings that add to the heritage significance of the area. This project involves investigating existing contributory buildings in the inter-war architectural style to confirm their significance.
West Footscray Inter-war and Post-war Precinct Study
West Footscray and its surrounds contain a number of inter-war and post-war residential areas. Heritage consultants will investigate this area for potentially significant precincts that may require heritage protection.
Maribyrnong Aboriginal Heritage Study Post-Contact Heritage Assessments
The Maribyrnong Aboriginal Heritage Study identified a number of post-contact aboriginal heritage sites that were recommended for state heritage protection. These sites will be investigated by the heritage consultants.
