After multiple discussions with the Heritage council of NSW and Minister for Heritage, the Hon. Don Harwin MLC, I wish to confirm that Heritage NSW is undertaking a compliance investigation in relation to vandalism and disrepair at Kenmore Hospital Precinct, Goulburn.

The buildings have been subject to serious and continuing vandalism, maintenance has been ignored and the poor state of the buildings is a dishonour to Goulburn’s history.

A site inspection conducted by Heritage NSW officers occurred on the 21st October 2020, with cooperation from the owner.

Heritage NSW is currently preparing a Minimum Standards of Maintenance Plan for the property and will continue to work with the owner.

I remain strongly committed to ensuring the preservation of Kenmore Hospital Precinct
