Provisional heritage listing of Civic Square

01 Oct 2019

The Civic Square Precinct has been provisionally registered on the ACT Heritage Register for its social and cultural values as an important central location and open space for public use, celebrations and cultural events and for expressions of democratic freedoms through protest, as well as being the location of local administration and cultural facilities since the 1960s with a modernist design that compliments the Griffin plan and focuses on civic use. Now the Heritage Council want to hear your comments to see if they got it right.
