Landscapes At Risk: Watch & Action' List

At National Management Committee meeting in June 2015 it was decided to prepare a list of ‘Landscapes at Risk’, as part of our mission to promote awareness and conservation of significant gardens and cultural landscapes through engagement, research, advocacy and activities should be developed. In the last six months the list has developed into a 'Watch  & Action' list.

 

The criteria for ‘at risk’ are as follows;

  • active current threat (development approved/ lack of heritage listing or consideration of landscape heritage, lack of protection during development)
  • potential future threat (development, neglect, poor management)
  • lack of champions (community protest, unaware, Council/manager uninterested)

 

This list is being compiled by the National office to be promoted to the public with the aim to strengthen the advocacy work of Australian Garden History Society across Australia. A draft list is attached below which includes Cumberland Hospital in North Parramatta, Lake Burley Griffin in Canberra and Toowoomba in Queensland.

We are asking that you read through the list and let us know your thoughts and recommend places that you think should be on a the list.
