Passion for heritage prompts protection

Passion for heritage prompts protection

Protection for more of Auckland’s significant historic buildings is progressing with the completion of the initial registration of buildings nominated by the public.

Auckland city’s heritage staff have registered over 500 nominations from members of the public for scheduling and are moving into the next phase of research and assessment.

“We are delighted with the number of robust nominations received,” says senior heritage specialist, Ian Grant. “Some individuals and organisations have put a significant effort into providing us with useful information to assist our research.”

Acknowledgement letters have been sent to all building nominees.

“The range of information we received varied considerably,” says Mr Grant. “In some cases we have requested verification of the address and additional information, but for the occasional building no additional information is required.

“We had a conservation plan submitted with one proposal, and the Blockhouse Bay Historical society have made an excellent job of doing historic research on all the buildings they submitted,“ he says. “They supplied relevant dated newspaper articles about the buildings, details about the architect, associations with historic personnel and included photographs of the buildings.”

Where additional information has been requested, Auckland City’s heritage department would like to receive old photographs or newspaper clippings verifying the association with a particular person or event, for example.

Additional information about the inventory is available on the Auckland City website www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/heritage.
