Question 2 (d) Outcome 4 Heritage and character networks

Page history last edited by Geoff Stone 13 years, 10 months ago

Question 2. Do you support the key outcomes and initiatives identified in the Draft Adelaide Road Framework?


(d) Outcome 4: Further recognising, and providing appropriate protection for valued heritage and character areas and buildings. 



Mt Cook Mobilised initial response to Outcome 4.


Strongly agree agree no opinion disagree  disagree strongly



Mt Cook Mobilised want to be involved in the identification of character areas and buildings in particular.  We would like to work closely with Council in developing a suitable guide that allows for:


  • More stringent protection of some heritage structures / locations
  • The context-sensitive adaptive re-use of character buildings
  • The construction of sustainable modern structures that appropriately reflect the "sense of place" we want to establish in the Mt Cook.[1]

Relevant background information from WCC


From the WCC Draft Adelaide Road Framework (3.32Mb PDF), p18-19


The area has recognised heritage and character values in both residential and employment buildings and areas. These make a significant contribution to the identity of the area. Adelaide Road also has close links to several important and distinctive landmarks including the Basin Reserve, the National War Memorial, and Government House.


In addition to contributing to an area’s sense of place, amenity, and people’s aesthetic appreciation of an area, character buildings are attractive settings for business activities to establish. Providing development opportunities that support the adaptive reuse of character buildings will help to retain the look and feel of the area while at the same time allowing for the transition to high value-adding employment uses.


Key concepts

  • undertaking detailed investigation and prioritisation of heritage and character buildings and areas in the Adelaide Road area (see Figure 13)
  • enhancing the protection of important heritage and character areas and buildings through the District Plan to ensure the integrity of the area’s historic heritage is not compromised by infill housing or demolition.
