2018 candidate for City of West Torrens.
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)?
Yes Though both could be involved Ie State heritage items
In your opinion, has the current system of local heritage protection served your community well?
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?
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?
No I dont agree that places proposed for listing by your council as Local Heritage or Contributory Items should be subject to review by DPTI would reviews be more appropriately conducted by an independent source of expert advice? Not sure That would depend on what independent source More detail needed
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?
Yes We should work more closely with the National Trust I am not aware what being the Trust's Civic Partners entails ... but probably yes
What are your personal suggestions for improving the way your council handles policy and planning?
Our Council is pretty good Our main issue is State requirements
Should councils actively encourage individuals to nominate places for consideration as local heritage?
