Following ECAG’s nomination of the Eltham War Memorial Buildings for inclusion in the Victorian Heritage Register, we are disappointed that the Executive Director of Heritage Victoria has made a recommendation that the buildings should not be included.

We, and many others in the community, do not agree with this recommendation and think the buildings are of enough significance to merit inclusion on the Heritage Register.

At this stage the recommendation is just that and the public has an opportunity to make a submission to the Heritage Council as to why the war memorial buildings deserve to inclusion in the Heritage Register.

If you would like to make a submission, there are less than two weeks remaining to do so.

The Executive Director’s recommendation can be read in full here.

You can download a submission form here.
