What might this mean for heritage protection?
Our heritage is important, and buildings with significant heritage value should always be protected or treated with respect. Such buildings and any proposed developments affecting them can be considered on their merits by the urban design panels (including heritage specialists as required) on case by case basis. We don’t want to limit high quality urban development in any area with unnecessary heritage zones, however. Again, TOP want our best experts to decide on this, rather than undue influence from NIMBY groups.
