What Council Is Doing
Development pressures are the biggest threat to the rich heritage history in the district. Council is continuing to monitor development to ensure heritage values are maintained. Ten consent conditions have been imposed on resource consents to protect or enhance heritage resources since 2000/01. These conditions related to a variety of issues including; waiving car parking requirements, erection of signage, constructions of decks and the control of buildings appearance.
Council has allocated funds that are used to protect and promote the heritage resources in the district. The use of the funds include:
Expenditure in 2010/11 included building maintenance at Firth Tower and at the Te Aroha Domain, Heritage Trail signage, and the renewal of the Te Aroha Domain Band Rotunda. In 2011/12 expenditure again consisted of maintenance on the buildings at the Firth Tower reserve ($2,265) and the Te Aroha Domain ($10,667).
