The NSW Government is developing a new online survey tool to improve how we record and manage war memorials across the state.

The purpose of the survey is to review information currently on the NSW Register of War Memorials and record new information around the location, type, history, importance and condition of the war memorial. The project will build on the Register of War Memorials to promote the ongoing recognition and conservation of NSW’s war memorial heritage.

GML Heritage has been engaged by NSW Public Works on behalf of the NSW Office for Veterans Affairs to create the online survey and toolkit, and to manage the initial pilot study and future statewide rollout.

About the Pilot Studies

The Ryde and Newcastle local government areas have been selected as pilot study areas to trial the survey and its toolkit.

The pilot study will run from 26 July to 26 August 2018 and participants will be asked to complete a brief online survey for one or more war memorials in their area.

The survey and toolkit can be accessed from the NSW Office for Veterans Affairs website.

The project will build on the Register of War Memorials to promote the ongoing recognition and conservation of NSW’s war memorial heritage.
