The Heritage of Western Australia Act 1990 requires that Local Governments compile a Municipal Inventory of Heritage Places. A Municipal Inventory is a list of buildings which in the opinion of the local Council are, or may become, of cultural heritage significance. The Shire of Peppermint Grove has compiled the Municipal Inventory through the process of community member contributions, public meetings, public advertising and meeting with community groups. The objective of the Municipal Inventory is to maintain the character and atmosphere of Peppermint Grove through the quality of the streetscape.
Heritage Category Definitions
Category 1 Buildings, which due to their character create the atmosphere of Peppermint Grove, therefore should be retained, but may be altered and extended in a manner which is both discrete and sympathetic to the original fabric and character so that a significant proportion of the original building is retained and from the street the additions are seen to be a continuation of the same fabric and character. Category 2 Buildings which also contribute to the character and atmosphere of Peppermint Grove. These buildings may be altered or extended in a manner which recognises and retains some original features or which may be demolished, but the replacement building should recognise by its position the adjoining residence and precinct. The owner to provide an archival record for any building demolished under this category and the Shire to provide a plaque for inclusion in the adjoining footpath to recognise the cultural significance of the property.
