2018 candidate for City of Holdfast Bay.
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 - and the process of consultation needs to be adhered to in all aspects
In your opinion, has the current system of local heritage protection served your community well?
Yes and no depending on the era. This has changed and changed back several times in the 6 decades that I have lived in Glenelg
Should councils reject proposals to list local places of historic merit simply because an owner objects?
This cannot be answered as a yes or no. Each case should be individually assessed and there should be clear processes of what is heritage and what is historic.
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?
Independent every time
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?
Have a rigid process that must be adhered to - if there is a need to go outside the process then the process needs to be changed and if the process needs to be changed then consultation is required
Should councils actively encourage individuals to nominate places for consideration as local heritage?
A partnership with National Trust in some form we hold more accuracy and credibility
