Brimbank Council is working to save two local heritage buildings from demolition.
Council is awaiting response to its application for Sunshine Technical School and the Sunshine Girls Technical School buildings to be included on the Victorian Heritage Register.
Council lodged the request with Heritage Victoria after it became aware of an advanced tender notice for demolition of the buildings by the Department of Education.
These school buildings both have regional significance from a historic, social and architectural perspective.
“These former Sunshine Secondary School buildings have great significance for our City and the region. They are precious symbols of the rise of technical education in the west. And also have an important association with Sunshine’s famous H.V. McKay Harvester works,” Brimbank Mayor Cr Ranka Rasic said.
The Sunshine Historical and District Society is working with Council to protect these buildings.
“Council is taking every action within its power to protect these heritage buildings from demolition,” Cr Rasic said.
