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.
