Our national multi-disciplinary team of planners and heritage advisors in WA and NSW negotiated with the City of Fremantle and the Western Australian Government for planning approval, as well as a heritage grant from the State Heritage Office worth over $80,000.
This resulted in North Fremantle’s iconic Dingo Flour sign successfully undergoing a face lift and restoring the Western Australian heritage-listed mill to its former glory. We assisted Allied Mills in gaining the planning approvals required for alterations and refurbishments to the Great Southern Roller Flour Mill complex, the only flour mill still working in metropolitan Perth.
The works included the re-cladding and painting of the distinctive Dingo Flour sign. After 76 years as a symbol standing near the entrance to the Port of Perth, the steel panels on which the sign was painted required replacing to prevent further damaging effects from the weather.
This project has strong ties to the local community and will ensure the Dingo Flour sign will continue to be a landmark image in the area.
