Have your say on the importance and social value of the Adelaide Park Lands and City Squares.
What is being decided?
As part of the Adelaide Park Lands and City Squares Heritage Assessment, the community as well as other key stakeholders are being given an opportunity to express their views about the social value of the Adelaide Park Lands and City Squares.
The South Australian Heritage Council (the Council) has received two nominations related to the Adelaide Park Lands (including Brougham, Palmer and Roberts Gardens, Hindmarsh, Hurtle, Light, Victoria, Wellington and Whitmore Squares) for State heritage-listing, which are being progressed. Read more about this here.
How can your input influence the decision?
The Adelaide Park Lands and City Squares are a significant contributor to liveability by showcasing all that the City has to offer, including its arts and music festivals, rich cultural heritage, major sporting and cultural events and picturesque landscapes of high biodiversity and heritage value. Much of what is beautiful about our City is attributable to the Park Lands that encircle it. And as the venue for many of Adelaide’s and South Australia’s premier events and tourist attractions, the Park Lands are critical to promoting and enhancing the social and economic life of the City.
During the heritage assessment of the Adelaide Park Lands and City Squares, one of the criteria under the Heritage Places Act 1993 to be considered is do they have strong cultural and spiritual associations for the community or a group within it?
In parallel to the heritage assessment of the Adelaide Park Lands and City Squares, which is currently being undertaken by DASH architects for the South Australian Heritage Council, the State Heritage Unit in the Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources (DEWNR) is inviting the community, including key stakeholders to have their say on whether or not the Adelaide Park Lands are considered to be important and why by completing the online survey.
You can provide your feedback by:
- completing the online survey
- joining the discussion
- sending in a written submission via firstname.lastname@example.org or post to: Hamish Angas, Senior Heritage Officer, State Heritage Unit, Department of Environment Water and Natural Resources, GPO Box 1047, ADELAIDE SA 5001.
Make sure you provide your feedback before comments close at 5.00 pm on Friday 29 September.
How will your input be used?
A report including a summary of the feedback, raw data and comments will be available on this page by 31 October 2017. Input obtained through this engagement process will provide valuable perspectives. The report will be provided as information to the South Australian Heritage Council when it considers whether the Adelaide Parklands meets legislated criteria for entry in the South Australia Heritage Register as a State Heritage Place or Area.
