There has been some confusion about the demolition of Shed 26, which forms part of the Cedar Wood redevelopment site purchased from Renewal SA at New Port.
Shed 26 was not State Heritage listed until considered by the SA Heritage Council yesterday, when they determined to “provisionally enter” it on the SA Heritage Register as a State Heritage place.
Prior to yesterday’s decision, Shed 26 had no State Heritage listing and a Building Rules Consent was received by Cedar Woods in November 2018, from a private building certifier to demolish the building.
Noting the above, the City of Port Adelaide Enfield was required to process the demolition approval within five business days from the receipt of the documentation from Cedar Woods. The City of Port Adelaide Enfield had no discretion to withhold Development Approval under the Development Act 1993.
Although demolition approval was received under the Development Act 1993, the recent decision of the SA Heritage Council made under the Heritage Places Act 1993 means that this demolition approval cannot be acted upon. The SA Heritage Council will now need to consider whether the building is given permanent listing.
For further information about their decision, please contact the SA Heritage Council on (08) 8226 2127 or DEWheritage@sa.gov.au
