Council recognises and acknowledges the important social, historical and cultural significance of interpretation in telling the story of our place and us.
Currently across our region we have a diverse range of interpretation in the form of signage, memorials, plaques, panels and more. To date there has not been a central council business unit that has managed or assessed community requests for interpretation or recognition. This has resulted in a plethora of interpretation across the region in a variety of shapes, sizes, materials, themes and content, in various states of repair and whose content may be aged or outdated.
The Interpretation Policy & Strategy will streamline application and assessment processes and allow for clear and consistent decision-making and impartiality on future interpretation in the region.
If you would like to submit an application for consideration of implementation of Interpretation signage:
Submit an interpretive signage application
A review panel will assess all interpretation applications and accompanying documentation at regular Interpretation Review Panel meetings.
