Heritage gives us a sense of who we are and where we have come from. How we manage our heritage resources reflects how we value and identify with our history.
Invercargill’s heritage can be seen in our buildings, our landscapes, our waterways, our monuments, our parks and our collections and artefacts. Our heritage is well worth acknowledging, celebrating and protecting.
2019 Invercargill City Centre Heritage Strategy
The Heritage Strategy will help guide future City Centre heritage decisions and initiatives. It was drafted in consultation with Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga, local heritage trusts and interest groups, and heritage property owners.
