Cultural and Aesthetic Benefits

Heritage precincts are becoming increasingly popular places to live and visit.   Communities are now realising that the historic environment enriches the quality of their lives, contributing to local character and a sense of place.

The value of such places to a community can include:

  • Heritage buildings provide important landmarks and community identity within an area.
  • The unique character and aesthetic value offered by heritage buildings is appreciated by residents of the city and helps create attractive, visually pleasing streetscapes.
  • Restored heritage buildings provide the perfect setting for residential apartments and quality establishments, such as up-market cafes and boutiques.
