PROTECT OUR BUILT HERITAGE
WE NEED TO SPEAK UP BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!!!
Here in Norwood individual State and Local Heritage listed homes and designated Historic Conservation Zones help create the ambience/lifestyle residents and visitors are constantly drawn to and have enjoyed for decades. Under new State Government planning reforms though, State and Local Heritage listings will be preserved, but Historic Conservation Zones and Contributory Items are under very real threat. Developers especially, want existing demolition barriers to the re-development of such sites removed, which would undoubtedly mean the gradual erosion of the unique local character in areas like Norwood, Kensington, St Peters & Kent Town.
Do we want our cherished historic streetscapes bulldozed in favour of a line of concrete boxes?? Do we want the charming village appeal of our Norwood community, ultimately destroyed?? Do we want the vested interests of a few (as with the proposed Peregrine Helipad) to outweigh the amenity/concerns of the many in relation to noise, safety and built heritage protection of the Clayton Wesley Church spire and leadlight windows??
If the answer to any of the above is a definitive NO, it is important to have your say and challenge these planning/development decisions without delay. Write a letter, utilise photos or even design a poster to communicate your thoughts to your Members of Parliament, Ministers (Steven Marshall, Vickie Chapman, Stephan Knoll – DPTI) and the State Planning Commission (Michael Lennox – Chairperson). These responses need to reach the recipient by May1.
