This Manual: Supplements Section 5.07 of the Newcastle DCP 2012 by providing detailed technical information to assist in the assessment of development applications within Heritage Conservation Areas. Describes the heritage significance of each of the Heritage Conservation Areas as a guide to why each area is culturally important. Identifies the physical elements that contribute to each area’s distinctive identity and sense of place. Provides best practice guidelines to assist applicants in designing development proposals that are sympathetic to the heritage significance of the conservation areas.
2. Conservation Principles
The special qualities of the Hamilton South ‘Garden Suburb’, Cooks Hill, The Hill and Newcastle East Conservation Areas have been recognised and protected for some time. The character and heritage significance of these areas and their related precincts is illustrated in this Technical Manual. In order that the special qualities of the areas can be appropriately managed and conserved it is necessary to assess the impact of any proposed changes to buildings or landscaping which would alter the area’s appearance or significant values. The provisions of this Technical Manual and related elements of the Consolidated DCP are not intended to hinder development, but rather to ensure that appropriate consideration is given to the potential impact of each proposal as it relates to its site and locality.
