Conserving Liverpool Pioneers Memorial Park

Consultation has concluded

  • For all work that requires excavation or ground disturbance, an archaeological permit from the NSW Heritage Division is to be applied for and received prior to commencing work
  • Manage Liverpool Pioneers’ Memorial Park in accordance with current best practice and statutory requirements to retain and conserve its heritage values
  • Implement identified conservation policies in this CMP to achieve the above outcomes
  • Nominate Liverpool Pioneers’ Memorial Park for inclusion on the State Heritage Register (with exemptions for day to day maintenance)
  • Enhance the landscaping and consider improving lighting and security to prevent vandalism and anti-social behaviour
  • Regularly assess the condition of all monuments and memorials and undertake on going preventative maintenance and physical conservation
