6       Update: Heritage Buildings at Risk Register


The report was provided as a follow up to  the 'Options to Address Demolition by Neglect and the Degradation of the Dunedin Streetscape' report presented to the Planning and Regulatory Committee on 3 June 2014.

The report recommended the development of a new Dunedin Heritage Monitoring Programme.  The key purpose of the monitoring programme will be to monitor progress in preserving and enhancing the city's heritage, by recording investment in and use of heritage buildings, and conversely highlighting any buildings and areas at risk that may need targeting of resources or other actions.


The City Development Manager (Anna Johnson) and Policy Planner – Heritage (Dan Windwood) spoke to the report and advised that the monitoring programme would include an annual survey of heritage items and precincts.  Staff would begin the assessment of sites in spring and it was hoped that the programme would be in place by the end of summer.



Moved (Cr David Benson-Pope/Cr Aaron Hawkins):

That the Committee:


a)     Approves the development of the Dunedin Heritage Monitoring Programme in accordance with Option One.

Motion carried (PLA/2017/010)
