Agenda item 2:
Work of the NSW Heritage Council's History Advisory Panel
on 'Place Names of Heritage Value' policy
Presented by Bruce Baskerville, Senior Heritage Officer
why is the Heritage Council interested in place names?
Place - Burra Charter definition includes a site, a building, a group of buildings, a landscape - all 'places' that are central to statutory heritage management in NSW and Australia. Generally, places that are 'below the bar' for GNB considerations.
Significance is the key issue
Significance = the key concept in heritage assessment and conservation
