Conservation work is generally concerned with the protection of fabric and enhancing the significance of a heritage place. Such work has become increasingly important and popular, but each place is different, so a variety of approaches and techniques for conservation are required.Before you begin any conservation work, thorough research and planning are important. A rule of thumb is to do no more than is necessary to a heritage building.
These elements should be considered in the planning process:
- respect the historical context
- identify the likely impact of change on the cultural significance of the place
- avoid uses that dilute or obscure cultural significance
- give preference to reversible changes
- give preference to additions and alterations which reinforce and do not blur historical appearance
- store material unavoidably removed for possible future reinstatement.
