Heritage group finds some keen owners
By David Loughrey
Despite concerns about the loss of Dunedin’s heritage buildings, there are some “extremely enthusiastic” building owners, committed to making sure the city’s heritage is saved, city councillor Dave Cull says. Cr Cull, the chairman of a council steering group tackling the issue, said it could be six to eight months before a report with suggested solutions was tabled at the council, but feedback so far showed there were some people willing to go the extra mile to re-use their buildings.
Site visits had been held, and presentations from owners who had undertaken large restoration and re-use projects, and a “mini-conference” on getting started on large heritage projects was planned.
