Shepherds Hill Military Defence Group

A draft Shepherds Hill Conservation Management Plan was prepared by City Plan Heritage and placed on public exhibition in late 2016. The Plan was amended in light of submissions received and referred back to OEH in early 2017. 

Since that time OEH has requested various changes to the Plan and a review of initial scope of works. City Plan Heritage has now submitted a revised draft Plan (October 2018) to City of Newcastle which is now on exhibition until Monday 10 December 2018.
