Maylands Brickworks Reactivation

The City of Bayswater is working collaboratively with the Heritage Directorate to reactivate the former Maylands Brickworks heritage buildings.

At the Ordinary Council Meeting held 28 May 2019, Council resolved not to support proceeding with any of the options proposed by the Heritage Directorate. A copy of the minutes in available in the document library.

Thank you for your interest in this project!
