Heritage Consultative Committee

The Committee provided Council with both broad-based, community support and input into its heritage initiatives and technical expertise amongst a range of eminent heritage practitioners. The make-up of the Committee included heritage practitioners and representatives from key community groups with a strong interest in heritage.

The make-up of the Committee was intentionally broad-based in order to facilitate a balanced view of heritage protection and overall community input and representation. The Ipswich Heritage Committee had played an important role: as the steering committee for the Ipswich Heritage Study; as a crucial sounding board for a wide range of new heritage activities; to provide community input into the decision making process involving development applications on heritage sites; and in policy formulation - including prioritising projects for annual budget submissions.
