Kamo’s Heritage – Just a thing of the past?
What do special places & heritage contribute to our district and to Kamo? • a sense of place, identity and continuity, contributing to the overall amenity or character of an area • connections between past, present and future as an area progresses so that recognised heritage values can ‘live on’ • reminders of the past (including persons and places of note and significant events) • the revival and sharing of past experiences through modern means of story telling • a source of information on styles and technologies of the past • interest for visitors, including associated economic opportunities.
How does the community want to celebrate Kamo’s heritage? a) Do nothing; or b) Rely on NZHPT to identify and assess items of significance for protection under District Plan; or c) Seek a comprehensive district-wide review of all District Plan heritage provisions; or d) Adopt a combination of statutory and non -statutory methods including: • listing of significant items • special character areas • heritage guidelines • heritage trails or story boards • regular community events
Statutory Obligations Resource Management Act 1991: • Matters of national importance including: (f) the protection of historic heritage from inappropriate subdivision, use and development • Definition of ‘historic heritage’ • Functions of regional and territorial local authorities in preparing and changing regional and district plans.
