7B.1  Objectives and Policies for Built Heritage

Updated 11 September 2018

7B.1.1 Objective - Built Heritage

The factors, values and associations that define the City's built heritage are identified and protected.

7B.1.1.1 Policy - Protecting Built Heritage

By protecting the factors, values and associations of built heritage from inappropriate subdivision, use and development by considering:

  1. The extent to which repairs and maintenance will adversely affect any recognised factors, values and associations;
  2. The extent to which alterations and additions will adversely affect any recognised factors, values and associations and can retain intact the elements of the building exterior and/or its interior that contribute to its heritage value;
  3. The extent to which the proximity of an activity and its scale, form and character will adversely affect any recognised factors, values and associations;
  4. The extent to which it is practical for an activity to retain and use built heritage without adversely affecting its recognised factors, values and associations.

7B.1.1.2 Policy - Relocation of Category A and B Built Heritage

By discouraging the relocation of Category A or B built heritage whilst having particular regard to:

  1. The extent to which the relocation is necessary to preserve the recognised factors, values and associations of the item;
  2. The significance of the site and setting in contributing to the recognised factors, values and associations of the item;
  3. Opportunities to relocate the item within the site;
  4. The recognised factors, values and associations are not (and will not be) adversely affected through the relocation.

7B.1.1.3 Policy - Demolition of Category A or B Built Heritage

By restricting the demolition or partial demolition of Category A or B built heritage unless:

  1. The item has suffered extensive damage caused by a natural disaster or man-made disaster;
  2. There is a risk to public health and safety posed by the item.

7B.1.1.4 Policy - Relocation of Category C Built Heritage

By assessing the relocation of built heritage having regard to:

  1. Whether the item can be relocated within the existing site;
  2. The extent to which the recognised factors, values and associations will be adversely affected through the relocation;
  3. The significance of the existing site to the recognised heritage values of the item;
  4. The risk of significant damage or destruction to the item if it is not relocated.

7B.1.1.5 Policy - Demolition of Category C Built Heritage

By assessing the demolition or partial demolition of Category C built heritage having regard to:

  1. The extent of damage caused by a natural disaster or man-made disaster;
  2. The risk to public health and safety posed by the item;
  3. The costs of retaining or rebuilding, and whether that work can preserve the recognised factors, values and associations;
  4. The extent to which partial demolition will adversely affect the recognised factors, values and associations of that item.

7B.1.1.6 Policy - Recording Demolition and Relocation of Built Heritage

By considering, in the case of applications for demolition, partial demolition or relocation of any item on Appendix 7A: Register of Built Heritage, the provision of historic record (including but not limited to photographs, plans, the erection of monuments or plaques) documenting the values of that item.

7B.1.1.7 Policy - Earthquake Strengthening and other Public Safety Works affecting Built Heritage Buildings

By recognising that earthquake strengthening and other alteration work to buildings on Appendix 7A:Register of Built Heritage may be required to address public health and safety matters. In these circumstances the necessary alteration work will be given priority, in accordance with sound engineering practice, while also taking heritage values into account.
