Heritage Advisory Committee members wanted

Residents with a genuine interest in Eurobodalla’s heritage are sought to represent the community on Eurobodalla Council’s Heritage Advisory Committee.

Advisory committees are a valuable link between Council and the community and help to ensure Council understands issues that are important to the community.

The Heritage Advisory Committee helps with the implementation of Council’s Heritage Strategy 2017-21 and assists in finding and distributing funding for local heritage projects. The committee has a three-year term and members meet in Moruya during business hours at least three times a year.

Council encourages residents with relevant experience or qualifications to apply. Expressions of interest should be marked “Eurobodalla Heritage Advisory Committee” and sent to Eurobodalla Shire Council, PO Box 99, Moruya NSW 2537, or by email to with “Heritage Advisory Committee” in the subject before 3 August 2018.

For more information or for a copy of the application form visit Council’s website and search for “Heritage Advisory Committee” or phone Council’s Strategy and Heritage Planner Steve Halicki on 02 4474 1324.
