Validating Planning Heritage: Evidence and Reasoning for National Heritage Recognition of the 'City of Adelaide Plan' and Park Lands
Abstract:The Adelaide Park Lands and the 'City of Adelaide Plan' (1837), as prepared by ColonelWilliam Light, have long been held up as an international precedent in town planning literature. The celebrated model, embraced by Ebenezer Howard to describe his Garden City theory, has several layers of cultural landscape heritage. The 'Plan', in recent years, has been subject to a rigorous investigation of its Indigenous and colonization evolutionary layers to inform moves to list the landscape as possessing national heritage status under relevant Australian heritage regimes, and more recently under the National Heritage List regime, as a pre-emptive strategy towards an eventual World Heritage nomination of the cultural landscape and 'Plan'.
