The City has now endorsed its Heritage Strategy which guides the management of the City's rich and unique heritage and celebrate it into the future.

The Heritage Strategy provides a framework for the conservation of the City’s heritage across four key areas:

  • Knowing – identifying, assessing and documenting our tangible and intangible heritage.
  • Protecting – securing statutory protection of significant places and areas, developing policy/guidelines to assist decision making and appropriate management, managing City owned heritage places in accordance with best practice, preserving the museum and local history collection.
  • Supporting – incentives, advisory services, financial assistance, education and professional development.
  • Promoting and Communicating– measures to raise awareness and appreciation of our history and heritage.

The preparation of the Heritage Strategy was informed through engagement activities with the community, City officers and Elected Members while also responding to statutory obligations in heritage legislation.

The results of the engagement process and a desk top survey of the City’s heritage management framework were collated into two reports Heritage Strategic Plan Community & Stakeholder Outcomes Summary and Analysis and Recommendations Report to Inform the Heritage Strategy. Both these reports are available in the document library for this project.

The City invited feedback on the draft Heritage Strategy and in particular the following aspects:

  • The vision statement.
  • The identified achievements and the key issues with the City’s current heritage management.
  • The proposed strategies and actions under the four key themes.

All submissions made to the City were considered and presented to Council prior to producing the final Heritage Strategy.
