Bass Coast heritage review identifies over 300 potentially significant places to be preserved and protected
Heritage review in Bass Coast Shire resulting to development and protection of places that could have potential heritage significance.
Bass Coast Shire Council adopted the Bass Coast Heritage Gaps Analysis and Prioritisation Framework and the Thematic Environmental History at its March meeting on Wednesday. In 2020, council undertook a Heritage Review, which resulted in the development of the Heritage Gaps Analysis and Prioritisation Framework, to guide how council should investigate the protection of places and precincts that could potentially be of heritage significance.
Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Michael Whelan said that the Heritage Review identified 311 potentially significant places, including 36 that were nominated by the community
Providing insights into the history
This project included a review of previous heritage studies, as well as community consultation to identify and document places and precincts of potential heritage significance across the Bass Coast Shire, that do not currently receive heritage protections under the Bass Coast Planning Scheme's Heritage Overlay.
The Thematic Environmental History project provides insight into the history of the Bass Coast area and how it came to be the place it is today and provides additional heritage justification for the 311 places identified in the Heritage Review.
Factors that give significance
Cr Whelan said that the project investigated history, including:
- Post-colonial settlement
- Built environment
- Natural environment
- Industry and employment
- Social and cultural factors
These factors make the area unique. Will also be looking to do further work with the Bunurong Land Council Aboriginal Corporation to better understand our local indigenous heritage.
"For both of these projects, council was provided with invaluable information, local knowledge and feedback through stakeholder engagement, which we are incredibly grateful for." Cr Whelan concluded.
