Conservation Management Plan, Heritage Advice and Heritage Impact Statements

In 1995, Design 5 - Architects prepared a Conservation Management Plan for the 1960s Andrew ‘Boy’ Charlton Pool and the western shore of Woolloomooloo Bay. The pool is located on the oldest designated public swimming place in Australia and research showed that the existing pool was only one in a long series of pools along this shoreline (eleven in total). The significance of the place derives from its continuous use as a place of public bathing, while the existing structure had little significance and thus could be replaced.

Design 5 - Architects has since been involved at regular intervals in providing heritage advice regarding the implementation of the conservation policies in the construction of the new pool and the conservation of the archaeological remains surviving on the site. Design 5 has also prepared Heritage Impact Statements for the new pool as well as for a new jetty and pontoon.
