The Battle for Our Buildings

Posted Thu 14th Dec 2017 | efront

Open House Executive Director Emma Telfer spoke earlier this year at The Wheeler Centre panel discussion ‘The Battle for Our Buildings. 

Is the bar for ‘heritage protection’ – which must include proof of the historic, aesthetic, social or scientific significance of a site – set too high?

What happens to perfectly preserved buildings that sit dormant due to rigid heritage controls? When a site is protected, what happens next?
