Building in a State Heritage Area

Colonel Light Gardens was designated as a State Heritage Area in May 2000. The designation recognises the important historical and cultural significance of the suburb which is regarded as one of the finest examples of the Gardens City town planning movement.

As a State Heritage Area, various acts and activities exempted elsewhere become classed as development and require development approval before being undertaken. The extended sphere of control applies to all sectors including State Government, service providers, such as utility agencies, telecommunication carriers and Council itself, as well as private citizens and organisations.

For more detailed information pertaining to the State Heritage Area please refer to the Environment SA website
