Have your say on Morpeth’s local heritage items

Maitland City Council is calling on the community to contribute to a Morpeth Conservation Area Review.

The assessment will help identify places of significance that should be added as local heritage items to bring the current listings up to date.

Identifying, nominating and listing noteworthy areas and objects assists in the protection and management of heritage in Morpeth for future generations.

“We want to hear about suggested places and public trees of local heritage significance that are currently unlisted and hear stories on heritage items, from all groups, people or organisations who are connected to Morpeth,” council’s manager strategic planning Andrew Neil said.

“This process will also allow for comments on the current boundary of the conservation area.

“The Morpeth Conservation Area Review will result in a revised listing of local heritage items under the Maitland Local Environmental Plan and improve the quality of historical information available for the area.

“Now, this is the opportunity for the community to let us know stories about places of significance and items that should be listed for their heritage value to help council manage and protect these places for the future.”

To have your say, use the interactive map online or visit one of the pop ups that will be occurring in Morpeth before submissions close on 28 February 2021.

Alternatively, you can make your submission by mail to: General Manager, Attention: Maitland Your Say Submission – Morpeth Conservation Area Review, Maitland City Council, PO Box 220, Maitland NSW, 2320.
