Busy Year Ahead for Heritage Advisory Committee
BMHAC is an advisory committee of Council, established in 2011 to provide advice and community feedback to Council on local heritage matters. Its members include two Councillors (Chair and Deputy Chair) and up to 12 community members with an interest in Blue Mountains heritage and expertise in associated fields.
In 2019-20, Council and the Committee are focusing on encouraging community participation, awareness and appreciation of heritage in the Blue Mountains area. This is in line with the findings of an independent review of Mechanisms for Community Involvement in Heritage, reported to Council on 27 August 2019.
The Committee will be involved in the development of Council’s new Heritage Strategy to incorporate a broader strategic vision and improve opportunities for community involvement in heritage management.
Blue Mountains Mayor Mark Greenhill said the Blue Mountains has many items and places of rich heritage significance – environmental and cultural as well as built – and it’s important to preserve what is distinctive about our local area, people and community identities.
“I’d like to thank everyone involved in the past achievements of the Committee for their time, efforts, passion and expertise, and encourage others in the community to get involved in future,” Cr Greenhill said.
“We want to work together with residents and other stakeholders to properly care for both Council and private heritage assets.”
We recently called for expressions of interest for additional community members for the Committee. The Committee also provides advice and support to Council in administering the Blue Mountains Local Heritage Assistance Fund.
