Hall campaigners are hoping for heritage listing

CAMPAIGNERS seeking to have the Pialba Memorial Hall and cenotaph heritage listed are quietly confident in their chances.

Hervey Bay woman Jannean Dean, who lodged the application, said she was positive about the chances of the hall making it to the state register.

"Everybody was really thankful that the application was put forward because it gives them hope," she said.

Public submissions for the state heritage listing closed on Friday afternoon.

A Department of Environment and Heritage Protection spokeswoman said of the 15 submissions, only one was against the listing.

"The department will then make a recommendation about the heritage significance of the place to the Queensland Heritage Council who will decide whether it is entered into the Queensland Heritage Register.

Fraser Coast Regional Council is yet to make a submissions and an extension has been granted to them until next month.

The application will be considered in May next year.
