Adelaide’s built heritage provides invaluable infrastructure and amenity for residents and visitors alike. The 30 Year Plan for Metropolitan Adelaide promises protection for areas of established character and heritage, but does not specify measures to implement that promise.
In planning for the future of our city, how do we ensure that our heritage assets are properly protected and effectively utilised to maintain their ongoing contribution to the life and prosperity of the city?
An informed panel discuss how we can protect built heritage within future planning processes and offer their ideas and policies for securing a sustainable future for Adelaide's built heritage.
Read recent press on Adelaide's heritage.
