EBAC calling for contributions to its Heritage Interpretation Plan
EBAC has commissioned an interpretation plan for the Morwell Power Station.
The aim of the plan is to communicate what the power station means for the community and for Victoria. It is dependent on the permit application to demolish the power station which is also currently under consideration by Heritage Victoria.
The consultant employed to document the plan is SHP (Sue Hodges Productions), who has undertaken extensive history recordings for a number of sites across Victoria and Australia.
Ms Hodges wants to hear the community’s memories of the old power station – good and bad. What stories did family members tell you about it? Thoughts on what should happen to the station in the future? What is the best way of interpreting it for generations to come?
EBAC has already interviewed a number of past employees to capture their memories of the site but SHP has suggested additional valuable information may be gained by offering the opportunity to others interested.
Ms Hodges and her team will be in Morwell on Wednesday 23 May, Thursday 24 May and Monday 28 May. If you are interested in speaking contributing to this plan, you can contact her on email@example.com or (03) 96818088.
EBAC General Manager Remediation, Barry Dungey and Coal Energy Australia General Manager Projects, Roland Davies, have responded to the decision by the Heritage Council to heritage list the old Morwell Power Station and Briquette Factories.
Statement from EBAC
EBAC General Manager Remediation, Barry Dungey, said he was comfortable with the recommendation of the Heritage Council to heritage list the Morwell Power Station and Briquette Factories but disappointed it had not also provided a recommendation to allow the demolition of the power station as requested.
