The Local Heritage Register is progressively updated to add, remove and amend details for places of significance.
The register currently has a total of 152 places of significance and reflects aspects of local and regional cultural history.
It includes a variety of structures, archaeological and industrial sites, monuments and iconic buildings.
The Fraser Coast Regional Council values its local cultural heritage and the economic, social and environmental contributions that it makes to our local government area. In recognition of its legislative obligation to compile a list of places of cultural heritage significance, Council adopted a Local Heritage Register in accordance with the requirements and processes stipulated in the Queensland Heritage Act 1992 in 2011. Council undertook a review of the current entries in 2012 in order to provide for consistency with places listed on the State Heritage Register.
Council has received a nomination for the removal of 38A Bluebell Road East, Tinana (Lot 2 RP 880020) from Place #147 - South Sea Islander Hospital and Cemetery. The nomination has been formulated in accordance provisions identified under the Act and also Council’s Policy Guidelines - Nomination for, Inclusion in, Removal From, or Alteration of the Fraser Coast Local Heritage Register.
Notice is given under Part 11 of the Queensland Heritage Act 1992 that the Fraser Coast Regional Council proposes to amend the Local Heritage Register. The reason for the proposed removal of the place is that it has been assessed as not meeting criteria A & C of the listing:
A The place is important in demonstrating the evolution or pattern of the region’s history.
C. The place has potential to yield information that will contribute to an understanding of the region’s history.
