Parry Street Precinct conservation works
Essential conservation works to early 20th century dwellings within Perth’s Parry Street Heritage Precinct.
What does the conservation project involve? How much will the project cost?
The scope of building works will vary from house to house, but will generally include:
• Urgent structural work, including repairs to verandahs
• Reinstatement of missing and deteriorated brickwork, raking out and repointing
• Refurbishment of doors, windows, floors and ceilings
• Removal of termite-damaged timber framing and reinstatement of new framing and cladding
• Fire separation to party walls and new hydraulic and electrical services
It is anticipated that the conservation works will be completed in the final quarter of 2021.
What are the benefits of these conservation works?
The project has received funding of $1.3 million as part of the WA Recovery economic stimulus program.
How can I find out more?
It is important to preserve the heritage aspects of these buildings as they are an integral part of the Parry Street Heritage precinct and contribute to the character and heritage value of the area.
The conservation works will enhance the overall streetscape and boost community safety by reducing opportunities for anti-social behaviour, vandalism, and other undesirable activities in the vicinity.
The project will stimulate the economy by creating local employment and contracting opportunities.
