Wattle Range Council has now completed a Local Heritage Survey of Beachport as part of the Council’s commitment to identifying properties that have significant heritage and cultural values within the Wattle Range Region.
In 2015-16 Council committed to budget funding for a Beachport Heritage Survey. Several architectural and heritage companies were asked to submit a quotation to undertake the heritage survey with Grieve Gillet Andersen (GGA) being the successful tenderer. The survey was conducted over the course of 10 months with 19 places recommended for local heritage listing.
Though the survey recommends properties and places for listing, they cannot be formally accepted as a local heritage place until a Development Plan Amendment is submitted and approved by the Minister for Planning. The Minister will consult with property owners and the wider community for their feedback before making a decision on whether to approve the recommended listings. Council will now engage with the owners of affected properties and provide them with information about the listings process.
The process of listing properties and places may take time due to South Australia transitioning from the 1993 Development Act to the new Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 (PDI Act 2016) that was passed by Parliament in April 2016.
