Looking Forward to Heritage Landscapes

The abstract for the 2005 talk stated:


A challenge to take up our professional responsibilities in heritage landscape protection in New Zealand, through statutory and voluntary mechanisms.

A review of approaches to heritage landscape assessment demonstrated with case study examples, both urban and rural, north and south, regarding the heritage of tangata whenua and tauiwi, and of various communities.

Identification of opportunities and gaps in mechanisms available for heritage landscape protection and management.

A challenge to landscape architects, and the professionals and decision makers in the NZ Historic Places Trust, in local authorities and in the Department of Conservation to recognise and progress the opportunities available.
