Cultural heritage is the shared inheritance of a community. A heritage place can be a building or a road, a bridge or a landscape. It might be a garden or a mine shaft, a lamppost or a cathedral. Heritage can be grand and beautiful, and it can be simple and austere.
Heritage places are the places that are important to a community. Places can be important because they are the site of an historical event. Others could be important because they are proud buildings, that show the wealth and grandeur of the past, or a place could be a rare example of the origins of the community, showing how settlement began.
Heritage plays a vital role in any community and the community plays a critical role in protecting it.
Heritage helps shape community identity and local pride. It establishes a sense of place for us, our families, our city and region. We learn about ourselves through our heritage and we pass that on to our children.
One aim of the City of Greater Bendigo is to protect our rich heritage for present and future generations. to promote what makes Bendigo unique, and to inform visitors and residents about our wonderful history. We do this through the Heritage Overlay, protecting our locally significant places.
