Developing heritage places

Monday 18 November 2013

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 Councillors 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.
