Place Category: District
Designated in 2016 because it is an excellent and intact illustration of the Veterans Land Act communities established following the Second World War. The VLA was a key element of the Veterans’ Charter, which provided a wide range of benefits to most veterans, ex-servicemen and women and the disabled; it retains many key elements of its original design including layout, lot size, set back, street names, green spaces and recognizable housing plans which contribute to the “sense of history” required in an historic district; it is a tight-knit community which is very aware of its origins and makes every effort to honour the original inhabitants and their wartime sacrifices. With its street and place names, signage, memorials and Remembrance Day services, it has emerged, over time, as a place of remembrance. Source: HSMBC, Minutes, December 2014.
