Heritage protection for Garden City Reserve

Exciting news was received this week that interim heritage controls have been introduced for Garden City Reserve – (excluding southern section /former road reservation) after a long campaign by Port People.
Permanent controls will be pursued as part of Amendment C70.

The Interim Heritage Controls have full force and effect of permanent heritage controls, but will lapse in 12 months. Interim controls are designed to protect heritage assets whilst the permanent controls are publically exhibited.
Amendment C70 will take the heritage controls through a full exhibition process providing the opportunity for submissions from affected parties and a Panel process.

In almost all instances the interim controls are directly replaced by the permanent ones – ie with no break in heritage protection.
