Introduction
The BWMC is a committee of Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council (Council) established under Section 355 of the (NSW) Local Government Act 1993 (the Act).  Chapter 12, Part 1, of the Act permits Council to establish a committee to carry out, with specific delegated authority, a function on its behalf.  As such, the BWMC effectively acts as the Council, is accountable to the Council and Council is liable for the Committee’s actions.

Purpose
The purpose of the BWMC is to:

  • manage the Bungendore and District War Memorial (the Memorial);
  • arrange for Australian Armed Services (AAS) ceremonial related activities in Bungendore;
  • provide advice to Council on AAS ceremonial protocols;   and
  • liaise with the Bungendore Public School to help educate the schoolchildren with regard to AAS history especially as it relates to Bungendorians, past and present.

The management of the Bungendore War Memorial Hall is outside the purview of the BWMC.

Description
The Memorial is located on Gibraltar Street opposite the Bungendore Post Office.  The Memorial includes the monument, stamped concrete plinth on which it stands, the Field of Remembrance on the western flank, the Remembrance Plaque on the eastern flank and the surrounding gardens, but not the greater area of Bungendore Park (Mick Sherd Oval).  The Memorial belongs to Council and is located on Council land.
