Heritage survey responses.
What do you think Council's role is in protecting and conserving heritage?
The buildings that are currently listed as heritage now should remain. There are some examples in the City that are very much run, which need to be renovated. However, if there is public building that is going cost many thousands to repair it may be better spend to have a monument it its place. Heritage is important.
What measures and incentives do you support to protect and conserve local heritage?
To get advice from the relevant conservationists to assess every individual situation.
What is the most important heritage protection issue in your local government area?
