Heritage survey responses.
What do you think Council's role is in protecting and conserving heritage?
Council plays a key role to preserve heritage in its council area. I believe this should extend to ensuring conservation zones protect our heritage and should be included in council's development plan. Where possible, councils should also provide financial assistance to homeowners to help protect heritage.
What measures and incentives do you support to protect and conserve local heritage?
Councils should use its development and planning powers to help protect and conserve local heritage. It should also promote conservation measures and provide advisory services to home owners to better understand conservation process and measures.
What is the most important heritage protection issue in your local government area?
Preventing the demolition of properties which are not included on the heritage register.
What policies and programs will you advocate to protect and conserve heritage in your local area?
Provision of an extended conservation zone, and a financial program to support conservation measures.
Do you support local Councils retaining development approval powers for projects over $3m in value?
Absolutely - this should remain council's responsibility and not be transferred to the state government.
