Book Now For Community Heritage
Time is running out for heritage groups in Auckland to sign up for the free New Zealand Historic Places Trust (NZHPT) Community Heritage Symposium focusing on historic heritage and the Draft Unitary Plan for Auckland Council.
The NZHPT is organising the one-day symposium on May 18 to discuss current planning issues that may have an impact on Auckland’s historic heritage in the future, and to share knowledge and experience.
“The Draft Unitary Plan is a very important discussion document that will determine many aspects of Auckland’s future – including care and management of its historic heritage,” says the NZHPT’s Auckland Area Coordinator, Judy Grieve.
“This is a great opportunity for heritage interest groups in Auckland – or individuals who are involved in advocating for Auckland’s historic heritage – to take part in a programme aimed at increasing understanding of the Draft Unitary Plan.”
The symposium will take place between 9.30am and 4.30pm on Saturday May 18 at the Auckland University of Technology Business School City Campus, and will include a series of talks and workshops on different aspects of the plan along with heritage advocacy. Topics will include a look at the structure and purpose of the plan, as well as issues like character and nominations to the schedule.
The symposium will also provide an opportunity for people to discuss issues and share ideas on making effective submissions.
“The symposium is ideal for people who really want to make a difference for historic heritage in Auckland,” says Judy.
