Minister responding: Hon D.A. Templeman
Parliament: 40 Session: 1

Answered on 15 August 2019


842. Hon PETER COLLIER to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Heritage:

I refer to the East Perth power station.

(1) Will the minister confirm that he removed the continuing protection order?

(2) If yes to (1), why did he remove the continuing protection order?

(3) If yes to (1), did he consult with the Heritage Council of Western Australia before removing the protection order; and, if not, why not?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

(1) Yes, it was removed by a revocation order gazetted on 9 August 2019.

(2) The need for the continuing protection order was superseded by the registration of the East Perth power station on the state Register of Heritage Places.

(3) The revocation of the protection order was on the recommendation of the Heritage Council.
