Lovell Chen prepared the heritage strategy, updating it three years later, and continues to advise Australia Post on its wider heritage obligations under the legislation, including advice on works proposals, the divestment of heritage properties and works approvals under the EPBC Act.
We undertook a nation-wide survey of Australia Post properties — the agency owns more than 520 (and leases many more — reviewing and assessing each to determine which have heritage value and should be nominated for inclusion on the Commonwealth Heritage List. More than 50 heritage places went forward for nomination.
Australia Post properties serve postal distribution and sales, administrative and retail purposes. They include buildings from all periods of Australia’s history, buildings of all sizes — from grand 19th century GPOs to modest post offcies in small towns — and buildings in many different streetscapes and settings.
