Palmerston North is a relatively modern city. Heritage buildings are a signpost to our past. But we don’t have many left. What can we do to conserve the remaining heritage buildings? What other things can we do to recognise and celebrate our history?
We're developing a heritage strategy to help answer these questions. It's also an opportunity to review the current approach to heritage conservation.
The draft strategy has three key directions that will set the overarching direction for future Council activities:
- Valuing and raising awareness of local history
- Conserving significant cultural and natural heritage
- Facilitating and supporting heritage projects
Submit your feedback by 11 July 2016
We want to hear what you think:
- What should the priorities be?
- What parts of Palmerston North's history are important to you?
- How should the Council support earthquake-prone heritage building projects?
- What other things can we do to recognise and celebrate our history.
