Her­itage high­lighted

Central Leader - - NEWS -

With Auck­land’s fu­ture up for de­bate a day has been set aside for dis­cus­sions on all things her­itage.

The New Zealand His­toric Places Trust is hold­ing a sym­po­sium on Satur­day for the city’s var­i­ous her­itage groups to dis­cuss plan­ning is­sues that may have an im­pact on Auck­land’s his­toric fea­tures in the fu­ture and to share knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence.

The trust’s Auck­land area co­or­di­na­tor Judy Grieve says 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 her­itage.

‘‘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,’’ Ms Grieve says.

The sym­po­sium will run from 9.30am till 4.30pm at the Auck­land Univer­sity of Tech­nol­ogy Busi­ness School city cam­pus.

It 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. Dis­cus­sion will be en­cour­aged. Places at the sym­po­sium are limited so book­ings are es­sen­tial. Con­tact Antony Phillips on phone 307 9920 or email in­fornorth­ern@his­toric.org.nz to book.
