Upcoming Meetings

7:30 pm Monday 16 March 2020

Presented by Melissa Ballantyne and Dr Darren Peacock

Like many councils, Burnside has in its current Development Plan a listing of contributory items, buildings which collectively add to a historic area’s character. A new Planning and Design Code is proposed to take effect from 1 July 2020 and there is a high level of community concern about whether historic conservation zones and contributory items will retain their current level of protection.
Melissa Ballantyne works for both the Environmental Defender’s Office and the National Trust and has a keen interest in the preservation of our natural and built heritage through law and legal policy reform. She has been closely following the planning reform process and is an active commentator on the issues that are arising. Darren Peacock is the Chief Executive Officer of the National Trust of South Australia, a role he has held since 2015.
