Portland Cement Works is a state significant heritage site located in the town of Portland, in the NSW Central Tablelands.
The landowners, AWJ Civil, are proposing to sensitively re-develop the site to adaptively re-use the existing buildings as well as building new structures to offer commercial, residential and recreational opportunities. The project – named The Foundations – has also involved extensive community consultation.
Niche Environment and Heritage was commissioned by AWJ Civil and Catalyst Consulting initially to prepare a Conservation Management Plan (CMP) in 2017. Since then our services have been extended to facilitate the endorsement of the CMP through Heritage Council, provide design advice and prepare Heritage Impact Statements for s60 approval.
