Does Heritage Cost Too Much?
Yesterday I attended the inaugural South Australia Heritage Conference, being held as part of Heritage Week. It was an interesting day with many guest speakers supporting the heritage view and many not supportive. For Goodwood South only Millswood is a Heritage Conservation Zone, other areas have less stringent heritage protection. What is the right amount of protection is a current issue state wide and certainly in Adelaide. For Unley the more pressing issue is how much money Council itself should contribute to enabling owners of heritage listed buildings to upgrade their properties. In 2011/12 Council allocated $50,000 and this amount was fully subscribed in the first round of applications ( we usually have two rounds). I'd love to get you to share your ideas on this one with a comment. You just need to enter a name and it will go to be moderated and published.
