The City’s History and Heritage Advisory Group meets every two months to provide a community perspective on aspects of history and heritage within the care or control of the City of Gosnells. Members are endorsed by Council for a term of two years.

The objectives for the City of Gosnells History and Heritage Advisory Group are to:

  • Work with the City to promote and advocate for the protection of community history and heritage assets.
  • Provide advice and information on history and heritage matters and projects relevant to the City’s Heritage Strategy.
  • On request, provide community perspective on history and heritage considerations for development approval processes relevant to properties listed on the City’s Heritage Inventory (2016), recognising that statutory planning processes are prescribed in legislation and may not in all circumstances be able to be influenced by such considerations.
  • Work with volunteers to undertake projects and community initiatives that are aligned with the City’s Heritage Strategy and endorsed City budget and resource allocations.

The full Terms of Reference of the Advisory Group can be downloaded here. Adopted minutes are available via the minutes of Ordinary Council Meetings.

If you are interested in becoming involved with the Advisory Group please contact the City’s Coordinator Heritage on 9391 6011.
