A report is underway to determine the heritage significance of the Brunswick Heads WWI Memorial Park, according to Council staff.
The park is believed to have been planted by locals around 100 years ago, with each tree representing a fallen soldier.
But the protected Cypress Pines have seen some branches removed over the years the area operated as overflow to camping and residents complain of their poor health.
While it is located on Crown lands, it is managed by the North Coast Holiday Parks Trust, a state-run corporation.
Its CEO Steve Edmonds told resident Patricia Warren in a letter: ‘The World War I Memorial Pine Park has not been Gazetted as heritage and the minister recommended that Bryon Shire Council undertake its own study into any significance.
The Echo asked staff if there was a plan/date/budget for the study. Council’s director of sustainable environment and economy Shannon Burt told The Echo the World War 1 Memorial Pine Park has been referred to Council’s heritage advisor and a report is being completed to determine its heritage significance.
She said when finalised if required, it will be reported to Council and if required, sent to the Department of Planning and Heritage Office for consideration for heritage listing in the Local Environmental Plan.
