Phoebe Abbey’s House is a Category 1 (the highest level of significance) place on the City of Busselton’s Heritage List and is located in Seymour Street, West Busselton – a rare surviving example in Busselton of a residential building from the mid-1860s. The house has been subject to a number of changes in ownership, unoccupied for a significant length of time and has fallen into a state of disrepair.

On 28 September 2016, following concern being raised by members of the community, the City of Busselton Council resolved in favour of the City taking further action to facilitate the conservation of Phoebe Abbey’s House, by working alongside the owner and an interested community group to ensure long-term preservation.

Working Group

In order to progress this matter the City of Busselton is calling for expressions of interest from local residents and community groups who are interested in contributing to an informal working group (not a formal committee of the Council), the role of which is to:

  • Identify and investigate options for the preservation of Phoebe Abbey’s House;
  • Provide technical/ working advice and community feedback to inform the assessment of options;
  • Provide a forum for discussion between interested parties.

You are invited to register your interest for the working group via email to city@busselton.wa.gov.au by Monday 13th March 2017.

We also invite you to take our quick poll which comprises of two questions and join the discussion here on Your Say Busselton between other interested parties.

All community advice, feedback and input will assist the Phoebe Abbey’s House working group with long-term preservation of the heritage listed site.
