2014 candidate for City of Holdfast Bay.
Heritage survey responses.
What do you think Council's role is in protecting and conserving heritage?
To actively listen to all concerned parties, groups or individuals directly involved with the "heritage" matter at hand. Having open discussions around the protection & conservation of the whole area.
What measures and incentives do you support to protect and conserve local heritage?
Working with all involved to find smart ways to maintain local heritage for all in our state, rallying all stakeholders to find a balanced and successful outcome
What is the most important heritage protection issue in your local government area?
Various buildings within the City of Holdfast Bay and our coastline is historically significant too, and thus needs precise management & protection.
What policies and programs will you advocate to protect and conserve heritage in your local area?
I would need to further investigate the individual programs and policies, ensuring these policies are kept up to date and move forward thus offering maximum protection without any loop holes. In my area there are various policies for buildings, houses and trees.
Do you support local Councils retaining development approval powers for projects over $3m in value?
As long as the council concerned is acting within the best interests of the residents, maintaining its integrity, its hertiage/history whilst re-invigorating the area.
Do you have any other thoughts about the protection of heritage in your Council area?
The City of Holdfast Bay and its residents are the fortunate custodians of a beautiful and integral piece of the South Australia. It is an area historically significant to all South Australians. None of us in the area own the view nor the heritage we merely protect and manage it for everyone to enjoy both young and old. I will ensure that the council aids in pro-actively managing this. Making conscious decisions, to benefit all.
