Morawa Municipal Heritage Inventory

The Shire of Morawa has undertaken an extensive review of the Morawa Municipal Heritage Inventory. The Original inventory was prepared in 1996 as a requirement of the Heritage Act of Western Australia 1990.

The Shire has resolved to prepare a Heritage List to provide for the long term protection and conservation of a number of buildings and places within the Shire’s municipal district identified in the Local Heritage Survey as being of cultural heritage significance.

Under the terms of the Shire’s Local Heritage Survey all buildings and places assigned a management category of ‘1’ or ‘2’ are considered to be of exceptional or considerable cultural heritage significance and in need of long term protection and conservation. As such, all category ‘1’ and ‘2’ buildings and places are proposed to be included in the Heritage List which, once formally adopted by Council, will form part of the Shire’s local planning framework and help guide Council decisions regarding their future development and or/use.
