Places and objects must be publicly accessible and a significant community benefit anticipated.
‘Public access’ refers to places that are accessible to the broader community. A ‘significant community benefit’ may relate to programs or activities that respond to community needs. These programs or activities are not generally commercial.
You can demonstrate benefit by outlining:
- Regular visitation such as a heritage site or collection that is open to the public.
- Frequent use as a community space.
- Use for community services such as an information centre or a homeless refuge
- In addition, you may also provide letters of support from stakeholder groups to demonstrate community support.
