Adaptive reuse of heritage structures The Property Council strongly supports the adaptive reuse of heritage structures such as the proposed Nobbys Lighthouse development.
Sensible and sympathetic proposals for adaptive reuse of the ever increasing stock of often redundant heritage buildings and sites must be an imperative given the lack of resources available elsewhere to assist to preserve historic building fabric.
Newcastle has a number of central business district and beach heritage assets that are now in varying stages of disrepair, principally due to a lack of resources to adequately maintain the facilities.
This issue has long been a source of concern and often heated debate within the Hunter Region. The weight of feeling behind the current situation with Nobbys Lighthouse is a case in point.
