Residents will have the opportunity to nominate a building or a place they feel has historical or cultural significance as the City of Bayswater embarks on a review of its Municipal Heritage Inventory (MHI).
Last reviewed in 2006, the City's MHI comprises a collection of buildings and places Council considers to have cultural and heritage significance.
Mayor Barry McKenna said preserving our heritage is vitally important.
"Our heritage buildings and places not only add character to the local area but provide the community with a sense of history. They represent a link to the past and anchor us in the present; explaining how we have developed in the way we have.
"Our heritage buildings and places contribute to the vibrancy of our City.
"From the serenity of Tranby House to the patina of the Peninsula Hotel (Dome) we are surrounded by beauty and history from another era.
"I would encourage community members to nominate places, buildings and structures they believe have aesthetic, historic or cultural significance.
"As a community we share the responsibility to protect and enhance our City's heritage for future generations.
"Privately owned dwellings have a role to play too and I would like to commend the efforts of individuals who have gone out of their way to conserve and enhance the heritage value of our streets.
"Owners of properties included in the City's MHI are eligible for heritage grants of up to $4000 for maintenance works.
"Owners of properties currently included on the MHI will be contacted by the City as part of the review process."
