Study area for the Bungendore Heritage Study

Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council is seeking comment on a draft Bungendore Heritage Study.

The draft Bungendore Heritage Study recommends that the heritage items currently listed on the Heritage Schedule be retained, that 21 buildings be investigated further for a possible future heritage listing, and that 9 buildings are identified as being ‘sympathetic development’ and may be listed in Council’s Development Control Plan.

The majority of the buildings currently listed on the Heritage Schedule of the Palerang Local Environmental Plan 2014, were put on the Schedule on the recommendation of the Bungendore Conservation Planning Study. That study was prepared by David Scobie in 1982 and as it is now over 30 years old, it was considered timely to undertake an assessment of the condition and heritage significance of the items included in that study.

In addition to reviewing the status of buildings currently listed on the Heritage Schedule, the Study seeks to correct identification and factual errors, identify any additional places with potential heritage significance and standardise data collection through the use of a template.

The study area was limited to the Bungendore town area and did not include rural properties, parks, memorials, fountains or trees.

Public exhibition closes on Monday 10 Dec. Find the document online at yourvoice.qprc.nsw.gov.au/draft-bungendore-heritage-study
