2014 candidate for City of Unley.
Heritage survey responses.
What do you think Council's role is in protecting and conserving heritage?
I think Council's role is just that - To Protect, maintain and conserve our heritage. It's a very important part of what makes up our community and history.
What measures and incentives do you support to protect and conserve local heritage?
I support all measures that are not onerous. This ranges from buildings to street design to parks and reserves.
What is the most important heritage protection issue in your local government area?
What policies and programs will you advocate to protect and conserve heritage in your local area?
Do you support local Councils retaining development approval powers for projects over $3m in value?
Absolutely. It is in this way that the local community can ensure proper safety of heritage buildings, and if local council do not have the approval power for these projects, it makes it very difficult for the community to continue to have a say in what happens in their area. I believe it diminishes the value of the community for these development approvals not to be controlled by council.
Do you have any other thoughts about the protection of heritage in your Council area?
I believe we have a lovely balance of history and heritage throughout the City of Unley. I'd like to see our heritage maintained and featured.
