Blue Mountains

Hawkesbury residents and groups are invited to nominate local buildings and places for the national heritage list, which provides protection under federal government regulations and laws. Approval must then be granted by the government before any changes are made to a listed place.

The Richmond RAAF Base and its North Base Trig Station are already on the Commonwealth Heritage List, while the Greater Blue Mountains is on the National Heritage List.

Federal Member for Macquarie Susan Templeman said anyone who wished to make a submission could contact her office for assistance.

“We need to actively push for our heritage to be protected and preserved for future generations,” she said.

Closing date for nominations: 26 February 2018
