Heritage sites can be at risk through a lack of recognition and legal protection or from neglect through unsuitable use. The National Trust campaigns strongly for formal recognition of heritage sites to ensure that they are protected for the future.
At present, formal heritage listing provides the first line of defence for protecting our heritage sites. The sites listed below are ones we believe require greater recognition and statutory protection. Do you know any other heritage sites that should be listed for formal heritage protection. You can nominate sites for consideration through this website.
A number of sites recently proposed for heritage listing in the City of Adelaide have been declined by the Minister for Planning, inlcuding
former Adelaide Cordial Factory on Currie Street
Former Orient Hotel on Gawler Place
Dun and Bradstreet Building on North Terrace
Star Grocery on Hindley Street
You can see all these sites on a Google Map. Use the Street view option to view each site.
