Peter Richard Smith
2014 candidate for Mid Murray Council.
Heritage survey responses.
What do you think Council's role is in protecting and conserving heritage?
I think Mid Murray Council is pathetic in protecting and conserving heritage. When I was an elected member in the early 2000's as much as some of us pushed the issue very little was achieved. A very important piece of heritage was demolished and building completely out of character were allowed it is pathetic!
What measures and incentives do you support to protect and conserve local heritage?
We must have a heritage register and work to protect our past for the future.
What is the most important heritage protection issue in your local government area?
Idiots with their own agendas.
What policies and programs will you advocate to protect and conserve heritage in your local area?
A register which is a working document.
Do you support local Councils retaining development approval powers for projects over $3m in value?
Yes 100% all development MUST be left to regional councils especially away from the metropolitan area.
Do you have any other thoughts about the protection of heritage in your Council area?
