RPS was instructed to undertake a Heritage and Statutory Provisions Review for Redland City Council as part of their planning scheme review process. RPS’ project team comprised members of the cultural heritage and planning teams. A key deliverable of the project was the preparation of a new heritage register.
This required extensive fieldwork and documentary research to enable the heritage significance assessment of over 250 potential heritage places throughout the mainland and islands of the Redlands Local Government Area. More than 140 heritage places were identified as locally significant and comprehensive citations were prepared for each proposed local heritage place.
Following on from the heritage register review, a succinct heritage planning strategy was prepared. The strategy includes recommendations for the establishment of an effective heritage management system in Redlands.
