Heritage Areas and Places
The Regional Council of Goyder has, within its region, places and areas of significant heritage value. The Australian Heritage Commission maintains a Register of the National Estate. Included in that Register is the Town of Burra and 39 individual sites. Heritage South Australia maintains a Register of State Heritage Places. Included in that Register is the Town of Burra and over 70 individual sites. There are also individual sites on the Register scattered around the Goyder district.
The primary role of the Heritage Advisor is to advise owners of properties which are listed on the Register of State Heritage Places on techniques for the proper maintenance, conservation and development of their properties and to advise Council when Council is assessing Development Applications relating to items on the Register.
Pending the outcome of the State Government budget decisions we currently do not have the services of a Heritage Advisor. During this interim period all enquiries should be forwarded to The State Heritage Advisory Services (DENR) Ph: 8124 4960. or via email: DENR.StateHeritageDA@sa.gov.au.
