Hay, Roy, Lazenby, C., Haig-Muir, Marnie and Mewett, Peter 2001, Whither sporting heritage : reflections on debates in Victoria about Waverley Park and the Melbourne Cricket Ground, in 20th century heritage : our recent cultural legacy : proceedings of the Australia ICOMOS National Conference 2001, 28 November - 1 December 2001, Adelaide, the University of Adelaide, Australia, University of Adelaide, Adelaide, S.Aust., pp. 367-370.
The successful nomination of Waverley Park to the Victorian Historic Register proved as controversial as the stadium was during its thirty-year existence. The nomination was accepted primarily on the grounds of the social historical value of the site, rather than its architectural or engineering qualities, but in fact a range of different social histories were in conflict during the registration process. Four of the social histories involved are outlined and their influence on the outcome assessed. Some of the implications for the evaluation of sporting heritage sites emerge therefrom (Hay, R., Lazenby, C., Lewis, N., Haig-Muir, M., Mewett, P., 2001).
