Hear this radio interview where Mayor Karen Redman stands up for the protection of Contributory Items in the new planning system. In her interview on ABC Radio alongside Michael Lennon on 12 September, Mayor Redman advocated that it is not going to be enough just to have zone overlays, and disagrees with the removal of Contributory Item listing in the new system. She also questioned the need for her town to spend $200,000 on a DPA to list them as local heritage items. She asks, “Why can’t we transition hem first, and then do sensible reform at a later date?” This makes sense to us!
