Council will conduct a heritage assessment of the Beaumaris Art Group Studios building after overturning its earlier decision to demolish the building.
The building is part of the Beaumaris Reserve precinct which includes the Beaumaris Soccer Club, Cricket Club, Tennis Club and Art Group.
Council has also resolved to proceed with a new design for the Arts Group building that is sympathetic to any identified heritage characteristics of the building and the precinct, and considers the protection of significant elements identified, whilst providing a facility that is fit-for-purpose and meets the user group’s needs.
Although the community is divided on the future of Beaumaris Art Studio, Council recognises all groups involved agree the current building is not fit for purpose.
Council will continue to respond to the community, informing all interested stakeholders on the ongoing decisions made about the Beaumaris Art Studio.
