The history and protection of housing in Burnside

Presented by Kate McDougall

Burnside is one of Adelaide’s important residential suburbs and it reflects the growth of the Metropolitan area and its changing housing styles in exemplary fashion. The Burnside Council area includes early villages, substantial mansions and estates, Victorian and Edwardian subdivisions and innovative suburbs from between the wars. The important residential architecture of Burnside warrants appropriate conservation and careful management in the future. This talk will present an overview of the historic housing of Burnside and how it is managed.

Kate is a partner in the firm of McDougall and Vines, conservation and heritage consultants, established in 1987. She is concerned with the long-term management of our cultural heritage assets and believes local government plays an important role in this vital area. Her main field of professional activity is in historical research and analysis of all aspects of the development of architecture; buildings, styles, architects, town planning and city history. Over a number of years she has worked closely with Burnside Council in the preparation of the heritage protection provisions of the Burnside Development Plan.
