4.7 Conservation and adaptive re-use of heritage buildings and places

Objective

The adaptive re-use of heritage places within the PDA will continue to promote the rich history and unique identity of Bowen Hills.

Actions

  1. Respond to the cultural significance of the place in accordance with the principles of the Burra Charter[52] and Department of Environment and Science Guideline: Developing Heritage Places.
  2. Implement conservation management plans to manage the construction and operational impacts on heritage places, and to provide guidance for their ongoing care and maintenance[53].
  3. EDQ and applicants will consult with the Department of Environment and Science and the Queensland Heritage Council to obtain advice regarding all significant heritage matters for development on or adjacent to State heritage places.
  4. EDQ will consult with Brisbane City Council to obtain advice regarding all significant heritage matters for development on or adjacent to local heritage places.
  5. Ensure Department of Environment and Science are notified of any archaeological artefacts discovered during site works and relevant requirements are met in accordance with the provisions of the Queensland Heritage Act 1992.
  6. In those circumstances where approval is given to remove or demolish part of a heritage place, it is to be appropriately documented prior to removal or demolition and submitted to the assessment manager[54].
  7. Conservation, revitalisation and adaptive re-use of the Old Museum may involve new development on the site and adjacent rail corridor by the state. New development will form part of an overarching strategy to rehabilitate and re-use the Old Museum through innovative site design which delivers improved pedestrian permeability and integration with the Brisbane Showgrounds and Exhibition Railway Station.
