Heritage Minister Robyn Parker announced the listings at Newcastle City Hall yesterday.

She said they would help protect the buildings and allow Newcastle City Council to apply for admittedly ‘‘meagre’’ funding available for restoration works.

The council requires about $28 million to refurbish and repair City Hall, according to its latest estimate.

The government has offered a $7.5 million loan, which lord mayor Jeff McCloy said he hoped the council would take up.
