  • Why doesn't this particular event come up on "Haveyoursaylakemac.com.au" yet? This is what people have been told to enter, but only the 2014 Morisset Hall version comes up. You have to type in Morisset Memorial Hall to get it, yet lots of other Council events come up just on "Haveyoursaylakemac" Val Badham

    over 3 years ago

    In collaboration with Morisset Memorial Hall Inc, Lake Macquarie City Council formed a Project Group to commission an independent heritage specialist to undertake the heritage assessment and Statement of Heritage Impact. CoAssociates was appointed in July 2015.

    CoAssociates is working closely with the Project Group and other community stakeholders to gather and analyse information and items of historical significance to establish the heritage context of the Hall.



  • Why is a heritage assessment being undertaken?

    over 3 years ago

    The key purpose of the heritage assessment and Statement of Heritage Impact is to investigate, assess and formally document the social history and significance associated with the Morisset Memorial Hall.

    It also aims to understand the current condition and likely ongoing maintenance requirements of the Hall, make recommendations with regard to either retention, removal or replacement, as well as make comment on the social impact of the Hall and recommendations on the future delivery of services.

    This assessment will inform the future steps of the proposed new Morisset Library and Community Building project.
