City of Canning Municipal Heritage Inventory 2017
In accordance with the Heritage of Western Australia Act 1990, local governments compile and maintain inventories of places with cultural heritage significance, commonly known as Municipal Heritage Inventories (MHI). MHIs are local surveys that record information for the places of heritage significance, serve as a source of information for the community and inform the local government’s decision making.
The City of Canning adopted its original MHI in August 1995. The City undertook a comprehensive review of its MHI between 2015 and 2017, which resulted in the City’s updated MHI adopted by Council on 17 October 2017.
The MHI contains Place Record Forms for each place of heritage significance. The Place Record Forms provide information on the places’ physical and historical significance as well as recommendations on future management of the sites and buildings.
