Red Hill Historic Plantings provisionally registered – public comments open until 7 August 2018
In mid 2017, the historic red flowering plantings of callistemon, grevillea and Darling Pea around the summit of Red Hill were nominated for an ACT heritage listing for their significant and historic value, having been established in the area 100 years ago in 1917, by horticulturalist Charles Weston, under instruction from Walter Burley Griffin.
As a result of the submission made by the Red Hill Regenerators, which was supported by many other organisations, the ACT Heritage Council advised on 4 June 2018 that the Red Hill Historic Plantings has been provisionally registered pursuant to s32 of the Heritage Act 2004.
Provisional registration is for up to five months, during which time community comments are sought prior to a final determination.
Community comments close on 7 August 2018, and can be made at the ‘Yoursay‘ webpage.
