2018 candidate for City of Unley.
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)?
In your opinion, has the current system of local heritage protection served your community well?
Generally yes but too hard to get buildings on the register, and Staying on it
Should councils reject proposals to list local places of historic merit simply because an owner objects?
Should neighbours of local heritage listed buildings have a right of appeal on development applications that propose demolition?
Yes. The right to make representations by neighbours has all but been extinguished by North Terrace
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 source, with rights of appeal by both sides perhaps to the ERD court
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?
UNLEY does it best, however ever dimishing powers, due to state government erosion must be reversed
Should councils actively encourage individuals to nominate places for consideration as local heritage?
