Love your local heritage, before it is too late
Under the guise of reforming and ‘improving the ways we recognise heritage places in South Australia’ the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure threatens to set our system back forty years.
The Department has released a discussion paper setting out its proposals for ‘streamlining’ local heritage protection. The National Trust has responded with a critique of the proposals and a call for an open public debate on heritage protection.
The damage done by these proposals could not be undone. It would be a crime as well as a blunder to proceed without widespread consultation of local councils, community organisations and the general public. This should include a series of public forums at which the proposed changes can be debated and recast.
