Be sure to have your say on council's proposal to preserve heritage

Published:

Council is making a final call for community feedback as the end of the public consultation period approaches for the proposed planning scheme amendment to advance the protection and management of our local heritage places and character areas.

Heritage Portfolio Councillor Rick Baberowski said it was good that the community had shown significant interest in the proposed amendment so far.

"A number of individuals have already shared their thoughts, concerns and ideas about what protecting key heritage places and character areas means as part of our planning scheme," Cr Baberowski said.

"Fundamentally, feedback received to date confirms that we need to understand, protect and conserve key elements of our region's heritage so that it is available to be enjoyed and understood by current and future generations.

 "While council has worked closely with and through expert historians to prepare the proposed amendments for the listings of local heritage places and character areas – it's also important to call on the community to share their insights and experiences.

"We understand that the community may not completely agree with the proposed amendment as its stands and that's a key purpose of the consultation, we want you to tell us what you think.

"Through consultation activities like this, we can better understand the community's views and understanding of heritage, and therefore better manage and protect it for future generations."

"We welcome and value submissions from the community, so if you haven't done so already, I encourage everyone to take a look at the proposal in the coming days and provide your feedback before September 16."

Feedback received during the public consultation period will inform the proposed amendment, which will then be presented to council for further consideration.
