The Bathurst Heritage Plan

Hot news everyone … Bathurst Council has adopted The Bathurst Heritage Plan. This is the first time we have had a heritage vision statement and a heritage mission statement, and strategic heritage objectives, as well as an action list.

Congratulations on a true collaboration between Council, National Trust, Historical Society, Family History Group, Heritage Network, Town Square Group, Rockley Mill, and others, has brought about this historic document.

The front cover (pictured) is a “word map”. All these words came through in the public consultation phase, and the larger the word the more times it appeared. Now we all know for sure what heritage is all about …THE FUTURE…. and…RESPECT

This document is a must for everyone involved in heritage matters around Bathurst – you can get a copy from Council – and for anyone looking to restore or demolish an old building.

Now we all know what The Plan is for the next three years, and why BATHURST HERITAGE MATTERS.

thought of the week……. “let’s all embrace our heritage buildings, places, objects, people, environment, and their stories.”
