Lighthouse Compound Heritage Plan (Boffa Miskell, 2014)Search in document library
In 2012, Greater Wellington Regional Council (GWRC) amended the Parks Network Plan to include a Baring Head/Ōrua-pouanui chapter. The plan calls for GWRC to manage key sites of historic and cultural heritage significance in the East Harbour Regional Park, including the development of a heritage conservation plan for the area occupied by the lighthouse compound (the compound) comprising the existing lighthouse keepers’ houses and ancillary buildings, the shelter belt and associated gardens.
In response to this requirement a team led by Boffa Miskell Limited was commissioned by GWRC in December 2013 to prepare a Heritage Plan (the Plan) for the compound. The purpose of the Plan is to identify guidelines and actions to inform future management, conservation, restoration, adaptive re-use or new development of the site in a way that respects and retains its associated heritage values.
