Fact Sheet 5 - Heritage Restoration and Adaptive Reuse

This is the text of Fact Sheet 5 released on 30 August 2006 by the RWA.

The Built Environmental Plan seeks to restore/adaptively reuse up to 7.65 hectares of heritage structures on RWA strategic sites, including up to 6.7 hectares of rail heritage.

This approach aims to preserve the heritage and industrial character of certain sites by ensuring new development responds sensitively to significant heritage items, and encouraging adaptive re-use where practical.
