Heritage talks constructive

CONSTRUCTIVE consultations between the Heritage Minister Graham Kierath and the property industry would result in a more balanced approach to the Heritage Bill, according to the Property Council.

The Bill, which is before the Legislative Assembly, was introduced last year.

Its first draft contained provisions of major concern to owners, developers and legal representatives, according to the PCA.

The introduction of new open-ended ministerial powers for orders to require repair, maintenance, preservation and restoration concerned the council which said there was no right for an owner to be heard or notified.

The revised Bill aims to give owners notice of any order, the reasons for it and a gives owners the right to object to the order.

The Minister has agreed to limit the scope of conservation orders.

PCA WA executive director Joe Lenzo said the revised Bill was a considerable improvement.
