Minimum Block Sizes
In my submission to the Planning and Development Code changes, I requested that minimum block sizes for the Special Character Areas in our community be raised from 250sqm, alarmingly proposed by the City of Mitcham.
Heritage Protection Measures
I have tabled amendments in Parliament to protect heritage listed spaces and buildings such as the Waite Gatehouse and Belair National Park.
The proposed legislation would require both Houses of Parliament to approve any reductions of heritage significance or destruction to any place listed on the State Heritage register.
Heritage plays such an important role in illustrating the history of our State and provides a special place for people to meet and community groups to establish themselves.
After witnessing the attack on the Waite Gatehouse which has been on the State Heritage Register since 1982, myself and others determined that the State Heritage listing was not in itself great enough protection from future development and destruction.
