2018 candidate for City of Port Adelaide Enfield.
Heritage survey responses.
Do you agree that the identification and protection of local heritage places is best done by local councils rather than DPTI (Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure)?
Yes we should have a say in saving places of local heritage and improve the system.
In your opinion, has the current system of local heritage protection served your community well?
In some areas and some properties but room for improvement.
Should councils reject proposals to list local places of historic merit simply because an owner objects?
No and each Historic property large or small should be referred to a joint community group committee of local councillors and all parties with a vested interest.
Should neighbours of local heritage listed buildings have a right of appeal on development applications that propose demolition?
Should buildings listed as Contributory Items in your council area receive better protection?
Do you agree that places proposed for listing by your council as Local Heritage or Contributory Items should be subject to review by DPTI? Or would reviews be more appropriately conducted by an independent source of expert advice?
I believe that councils should fight to keep all local heritage buildings to be saved, sub committee formed with all parties with vest interest to recommend decisions.
Would you like to see your council work more closely with the National Trust of SA in protecting heritage, for example, by signing up as one of the Trust's Civic Partners?
What are your personal suggestions for improving the way your council handles policy and planning?
Should councils actively encourage individuals to nominate places for consideration as local heritage?
Yes and the council should also nominate places for consideration.
