Initiatives & Interpretation
City of Adelaide provides a fantastic range of initiatives and interpretive programs which promote and support built heritage management in the City of Adelaide.
The heritage promotions component of the Built Heritage Management Policy aims to “support the conservation and promotion of the City’s built heritage and historic character streetscapes by fostering community awareness and promoting the value of heritage buildings and historic character streetscapes through promotional and education activities”.
The Heritage Promotions component began approximately twelve years ago with the introduction of the heritage plaques program. It has since expanded and now includes (but is not limited to):
- Heritage Plaques
Blue oval plaques installed on heritage listed properties throughout the City and North Adelaide.
- Historic Business Recognition Plaques
Rectangular plaques installed on sites of early businesses in the City.
- Historic Walking Trails
A collection of Council produced or sponsored walking trails.
- Public Realm Charter
The Charter identifies historic elements in the public realm for the purpose of protecting and revitalising historic character streetscapes e.g. stone kerbing and cast iron street signs.
