Our local heritage under threat

The National Trust of South Australia has produced a damning report on the State Government’ s discussion paper aimed at reforming and “improving the ways we recognise heritage places in South Australia”:

Heritage Under Threat – National Trust Response

The community has only been given a few weeks to respond to the Government’s ideas on heritage reform, although the deadline for written feedback has now been extended to 23rd September.

It seems that the Adelaide City Council and Local Government Association also have concerns about the Paper and consultation process:

Advertiser – Expert warns of ‘demolition derby’ for heritage buildings

Advertiser – Heritage-listed properties can be demolished on ‘merit’ under new State Government plan

InDaily – Govt proposal threatens to demolish local heritage system: National Trust

Community Alliance SA will be producing a response to the Local Heritage Discussion Paper, which can be found here.
