District Planning

Heritage Review

Council is into the second year of Local Heritage work within the district. The impetus for this work came from Council’s desire to recognise district heritage assets during the preparation of the Council’s ‘District 30 Year Plan – Shaping our future together’ where key values that were highly valued by the community included ‘Preserving indigenous and European heritage’. Since 2015, a part-time staff resource has been funded by Council (Dr Iris Iwanicki) to undertake the professional investigations into our local heritage work with Council staff and collaborate with the Yankalilla and District Historical Society and help promote awareness about the value of local heritage to building owners and the community as a whole.

So far, a number of initiatives to raise community awareness about local heritage have been undertaken:

  • Promotion to the community over the last 12 months (including a number of public consultation events in late 2015) about the ‘Local Heritage – Places and Spaces’ initiative, seeking community input on what is valued about the district and what would like to be kept for future generations;
  • Participation in History Month during May 2016 with public presentations and a Youth Art Competition of Local Heritage;

A comprehensive review has been undertaken of the 1985 Heritage Survey of the district that originally identified 185 buildings and structures of significance, 22 of which have been included on the Register of State Heritage. The review identified 37 buildings, structures and ruins that could not be found or have been demolished since 1985 and 2 buildings that should have been listed but weren’t on the list. Each remaining site has been inspected, photographed and accurately located. An updated Survey list has been prepared which is below.

  • The next stage of this work involves the assessment of all remaining sites against the current Local Heritage criteria to establish their level of significance and lead onto the preparation of a Development Plan Amendment to create a formal Local Heritage register within the district that would be subject to a rigorous professional assessment and widespread community engagement, including with affected property owners.
