An iconic section of Stawell's Central Park will undergo restoration works after sustaining damage last year.
Heritage Victoria granted Northern Grampians Shire Council a permit to repair the Central Park gates after being damaged by a vehicle last year.
"It's taken a long time to organise the permit and repair, and the gates will be out of action for some time, but we're sure the community will be patient and will appreciate the restored gates when they return to Central Park," Northern Grampians Shire mayor Kevin Erwin said.
The gates will be removed this week, with the undamaged gate being used to replicate the design.
Council believes the gates will be returned by September. Temporary fencing will stand in its place until then.
The gates were erected in 1903 to commemorate those who served in the Boer War. They cost 270 pounds and are now heritage listed.
