Developing heritage places

I was delighted to hear that the recently published guideline Developing heritage places: using the development criteria has received a commendation from the Planning Institute of Aus­tra­lia. This is what the award judges wrote about the document:

The ‘Developing Heritages Places’ document is a clear and rigorous checklist of assessment criteria and considerations for stakeholders involved in site-specific development pro­pos­als relating to a Queensland heritage place.
      The checklist is supported by more detailed case studies and recommended (as opposed to required) actions to in­form the development of proposals, preparation of better development applications and prelodgement meetings with assessment authorities.
      The document is well presented, and as a result, will be accessible to multiple stakeholders. The judges were par­tic­u­lar­ly impressed by the inclusion of photographs of ex­am­ple cases studies, the comprehensiveness of the checklist from scoping through to construction and the ‘road-testing’ of the checklist undertaken by the Department with local government.
      ‘Developing Heritage Places’ has been endorsed by the Queensland Heritage Council and the judges believe rep­re­sent a model to be implemented in other jurisdictions moving forward

I feel a glow from this award since, with my fellow Queensland Heritage Councilors Chris Buckley and Howard Guille, I had a hand in shaping this document, working with Gail Pini and her colleagues in the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection.

The Illustrated Burra Charter: how to buy it online

The Illustrated Burra Charter: good practice for heritage places has been widely accepted, often cited, and sometimes com­men­ded. But, sadly, the book has never been widely promoted or distributed.

It is hard to find a copy for sale in a book­shop or on the web. I have had quite a few enquiries from people who want­ed to buy one, but who couldn’t find a convenient source. In the past I have sent those people to the Australia ICOMOS website, where the online ordering process is a reminder of life before amazon.com.

I am very pleased to see that the Australian Council of National Trusts has set up an online shop which offers the Illustrated Burra Charter. At last, you can order the book online, pay with a credit card, and have the book delivered by mail.

open book

Postscript, 11 November 2013: Fishpond and United Campus Bookshops offer the book too.
