Heritage forms part of communal DNA; it is therefore part of who we are as a community. Heritage advocates are now not only being forced to prove why a place is historically significant but also to produce evidence of its fiscal merit to the government that would rather sell it for development. Considering this, it is paramount that heritage and community groups are working together. Maintaining a constant surge of momentum in partnership with local resident engagement is imperative to being heard.
In this presentation, delivered at the 2016 RAHS Conference, Suzette Meade discussus how NPRAG has, in 18 months, developed strong community coalitions, as well as continuing to create solution-seeking strategies for the future to protect and promote Parramatta’s heritage.
Suzette Meade has been President of NPRAG since its inception in early 2015, and also sits on Parramatta City Council’s heritage advisory panel. Most recently Suzette was asked to join the leadership group of the NSW Better Planning Network. She is dedicated to the retention of narratives from our past remaining present in our future community DNA.
