Abstract

This report provides a summary of the outcomes and quality of 23 projects funded by the Australian Heritage Commission (AHC) through the National Estate Grants Program (NEGP) in Western Australia with reports ranging between 1977 and 1996. It complements and is the second part to the report prepared in 1996 by Jeni Alford [Summary: Outcomes of Projects Funded Under the National Estate Grants Program (Western Australia)] which reviewed 83 projects. The projects reviewed in this report are derived from a list provided by the Heritage Council of Western Australia (HCWA). This report was prepared under contract by Murdoch University for the Heritage Council of Western Australia.

Project information and outcomes were obtained from the Heritage and Environment (HERA) database and project reports held at the HCWA library. Information on each project was summarised in a standardised format. This included: geographic location of each project; availability of final reports; a copy of the HERA abstract; whether nominations to the Register of National Estate (RNE) were made; the date and comprehensiveness of each report; and whether reports were published. Project summaries were categorised into: Section I- Perth Metropolitan Region; Section II - South-West of Western Australia; Section III - Remainder of Western Australia; and Section IV- Western Australia- General. The format of this report and the one prepared by Jeni Alford in 1996 are identical to allow ready comparison and compilation of information.

More than half the reports (52%) were regarded as highly comprehensive, 35% were very good and 13% were adequate. Reports based on vegetation or floristic surveys were most common (35% ), followed by ecological surveys (17%) and geological monuments (13%). Other projects covered education, fauna surveys, historical monuments, wetlands and marine surveys. Seven of the reports (29%) made recommendations for nominations to the Register of the National Estate. Most of the reports were completed in 1992-1994.
