Consultation has concluded

Update and next steps

The Local Heritage Development Plan Amendment (DPA) was open for consultation from 8 March 2021 to 6 May 2021. Impacted property owners were invited to make comment on the proposal, as well as the general public through the yourholdfast.com website. The website had 539 visits, with 253 document downloads during the consultation process. As part of the consultation council received a large number of phone calls (including a Zoom call from America) and conducted six home visits to properties proposed as part of this DPA

Nine submissions were made via the Yourholdfast.com website, and seven submissions were received via mail. Nine of the representations were in support of the proposal, two were neutral and three opposed the Development Plan Amendment. Of the nine submissions received via the website, none were from property owners impacted by the Development Plan Amendment. In response to the three representations opposing the DPA, it was noted that one was a generic opposition of the process stating that “I don’t believe any new restrictions should be places on any houses or buildings”. The requirements for what constitutes a heritage place is outlined in the Planning, Development and Infrastructure Act 2016 and are not being assessed in the DPA. This DPA relates to places that council considers to be of sufficient heritage value as to warrant being listed as a Local Heritage Place, not the policy that impacts on heritage places. Arguments on whether properties should be included in this DPA should relate to the heritage value of a property, and whether they have sufficiently meet the criteria to become a Local Heritage Place. Therefore, whilst the comments are noted, they are considered not to be relevant to this DPA. One of the representations opposing the amendment did not list any reasons for the objection. Although the representation was made by an impacted property owner, as no reasons were provided Council has not removed the property from the Amendment. The third representation opposing the Amendment listed a variety of reasons including not receiving a rates discount if listed, slow assessment on previous development, and potential increase in fines for illegal development. As none of the reasons listed disputed the heritage value of the property, the property is still included in the Amendment

Background

In May 2019, the former Minister for Planning advised councils that they could prepare a Transition Development Plan Amendment to elevate suitable Contributory Items to Local Heritage Places if they comply with the legislated criteria under the Development Act 1993. Guidelines for councils undertaking a DPA to elevate worthy Contributory Items was provided in the “Heritage in Transition Guide” produced by the SA Planning Commission in August 2019.


In response, the City of Holdfast Bay resolved to proceed with a Local Heritage Development Plan Amendment commissioning a Heritage Survey of the 534 Contributory Items listed in table HoB/3 of the Development Plan.

Proposed Development Plan Amendment

Pursuant to sections 24 and 25 of the Development Act 1993, the City of Holdfast Bay has prepared a Development Plan Amendment (DPA) Report to amend its Development Plan.

The DPA seeks to elevate 29 Contributory Items from council’s list of 534 Contributory Items to become Local Heritage Places. Each place has been assessed against the local heritage criteria (prescribed in section 23 (4) (a) of the Development Act,1993).

This DPA is not a council-wide heritage survey, but is limited to existing Heritage Contributory Items located within an Historic Conservation Area.

What is a Contributory Item?

Contributory Items are buildings or structures that are considered to make a positive contribution to the historic streetscape character of an area. Contributory Items generally form part of a cohesive group of buildings that demonstrate a consistent pattern of particular forms of development, representing a defined period and its built-form character, usually described in Desired Character statements within a Development Plan.


What is a Local Heritage Place?

Local Heritage Places are buildings or structures that are significant to the heritage of Holdfast Bay. They provide us with a physical connection to the past and reflect the practices, attitudes, architecture, design and values that have shaped the environment. Local Heritage Place listings will help to ensure ongoing heritage protection for future generations to appreciate.
