Heritage survey responses.
What do you think Council's role is in protecting and conserving heritage?
Council supports the preservation of what heritage property and items which we own, and will encourage and support others to do the same.
What measures and incentives do you support to protect and conserve local heritage?
Council does give heritage awards to people whose work deserves recognition and merit.
What is the most important heritage protection issue in your local government area?
The preservation of the Port Elliot breakwater, although it is supported in principle by the National Trust we have no positive response from the state government.
What policies and programs will you advocate to protect and conserve heritage in your local area?
That will be a matter for the incoming Council.
Do you support local Councils retaining development approval powers for projects over $3m in value?
Do you have any other thoughts about the protection of heritage in your Council area?
I believe our heritage is firmly entrenched in the community psyche and it would be foolish for any Elected Member to fail to recognise this obvious fact of life. I certainly appreciate the value of our heritage and assure you it has my unconditional support.
