I feel strongly that heritage is one of this city’s biggest assets. In particular I think our heritage buildings need a special focus. I acknowledge that it will be difficult to keep them all. In some cases we may be able to retain facades only. In other cases we may not be able save a building at all. Our buildings are often taken for granted by us, but their value can be seen when you watch tourists stand in the middle of the road to take photos of them.
I believe we should enhance this value by providing a better experience around our heritage buildings. This could be done on the street with signage and information and I think that the Dee St buildings could provide a good walking link between the inner city and Queens Park. Technology could also be used as part of this.
