Northern Beaches Council to apply for NSW State Heritage status for historical park
Northern Beaches Council has advised that it will nominate the Manly Warringah War Memorial State Park for State Heritage status, recognising its environmental, Aboriginal cultural and historical significance.
With the Council last week agreeing to submit an application to the Heritage Council of NSW for consideration, Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said the area meets the criteria for state listing.
Mayor Regan stated "the heritage values of Manly Warringah War Memorial State Park have been recognised for a century. The Park is highly valued by the local community for its scenic beauty and as a recreation venue, conservation area and Aboriginal cultural site.
"It also includes the historic dam structure and significant ecological communities and populations of rare and endangered flora and fauna.
"State Listing is very important, because it recognises the State Park as a very significant place, and safeguards the environmental, economic and cultural benefits of this fantastic area for present and future generations."
The Park is approximately 377 hectares in size, with areas of remnant bushland, open water and modified landscape (including a golf course and picnic areas).
The Park is Crown land with the Council acting as the Crown Land Manager.
