Heritage Council announces extension to submissions on the removal of Wambo from the SHR

Great news. The Heritage Council has extended the deadline for submissions on this matter until November 9.

As we are all aware, the Heritage Council is considering whether to recommend removal of the Wambo Homestead Complex from the State Heritage Register, following a request from Peabody Coal Pty Ltd.

Wambo Coal Pty Ltd has made a formal application under the Heritage Act to remove the item under section 38 of the Act.

The Heritage Council considered this application, together with a report prepared by the Heritage Branch, at its 16 September 2010 meeting. The Heritage Council did not made a decision on the removal at this stage, but decided to seek public comment on the proposal.

Please see www.heritage.nsw.gov.au for the reports and information on this matter.

Written submissions on this issue are invited from any interested person to:
Heritage Council of NSW
Locked Bag 5020
Parramatta NSW 2124

Please direct any enquiries to Cameron White on (02) 9873 8570.
