Council have acquired two seven meter long boilers used at the No.7 and No.12 Burgowan Mines for an interpretative display installation that promotes the coal history of Howard and the Burrum District.
The boilers both measure 7 meters in length with one 1600mm in diameter and the other 1700mm in diameter.
Council have been exploring suitable locations on public land for the installation and during this process.
The below points wereconsidered for each site;
Several locations were considered but some sites demonstrated significant impediments such as major infrastructure conflicts, accessibility to the site and legislative requirements that eliminated them.
Preliminary investigations have identified separating the boilers across two sites being the RV Stopover and a specific location on William Street down from the bus shelter. Please see below for further information on each site.
Council are now seeking feedback from the community to have their say on the proposed sites.
