  1. Eunice that Heritage Register was only noted, Mayor Seccombe Cr Williams and the pro development Council in 2006 chose not to approve the register as it may have an impact on those who owned a property and affect their development rights????? There are cute little homes in Middle Street near the RSL which should be protected, the Study was quite detailed but never implemented

  2. Thank you for keeping us up to date on what is happening with the Willard Farm site at Birkdale . Plus information on the heritage assessment process and even today adding the hyperlink to State and Council listings.
    However, I’d like to correct an impression : that the heritage provisions of the planning scheme could not be invoked thus affording almost “as-of-right” ability to demolish the buildings, in the case of the Willard farm
    Not so! the heritage values of the Willard farm have always been there. And quite well documented including by academics such as Mary Howells, whose 2000 publication was actually a Redland Shire Council publication. Back in 1995 the then Redland Shire Council Heritage Study had its own inventory of items with both State and Local listing ticked for “Willards Farm”. The Birkdale Progress Association showed this using Council’s own report that’s in the public domain.
    So here’s an instance where due diligence hasn’t happened. No wonder there has been community reaction.
    Has Council done anyone any favours by putting its head in the sand on heritage matters? When and where is the next embarrassment going to happen?
    Has it done any favours for the owner/applicant? Should they have relied on more than just a desk audit?

    • Well said Me Too ! The applicant for the Willard’s / Pines and the representatives for the adjoining Commonwealth Land claim they had no knowledge of heritage values on all parcels of land…well they must have known as they have been involved in these properties for decades, but when there is money to be made, it’s best to forget these things.

      • But unfortunately, in 2006 the Council did not see fit to list the Willard property for protection under the current local Heritage Places Register (despite its obvious heritage value) I think it has become clear to everyone that this has been a gross oversight and one that needs to be quickly rectified.
