Review of Town of East Fremantle Municipal Heritage Inventory
Date: 14/1/2014

The Town of East Fremantle's list of Heritage Places has been in place for many years and has periodically undergone review. This list is referred to as the Municipal Heritage Inventory (MHI). The MHI assists the Town in managing new developments as well as preserving and adapting significant heritage places for the benefit of East Fremantle as a whole. The MHI does not prevent progress from occurring but rather gives the Town a heritage context in which new Development Applications are considered.

During the course of 2014, the Town of East Fremantle's MHI is to be reviewed. It is anticipated that any changes will be minor in nature, as the reviewal process has been undertaken several times in the past. The purpose of this review is to ensure that all places of heritage significance have been identified within the Town and that places with demolition approval are removed from the MHI. This process aims to culminate in a list that is a sound reflection of what the Town values in terms of its heritage. During this stage, stakeholder consultations will be held, with the outcome being a recommendation to the Town Council together with stakeholders' views on the proposed revised list.
