Conservation Management Strategies
Given the exceptional cultural heritage significance of the precinct, Curio Projects’ role was to identify key aspects of the precinct that best demonstrate its character and heritage values. The precinct’s significance as Gadigal country, one of Sydney’s earliest commercial hubs, and the LGBTIQ Protest & Pride Movement became the basis from which Curio’s cultural heritage management strategies and recommendations were formulated.
Curio identified multiple opportunities to help shape future developments towards high quality outcomes that highlights the precinct’s rich historic context and enduring character. Using a multi-layered approach to heritage management, Curio’s study hopes to help the City of Sydney reveal the many significant stories associated with Oxford Street and inspire public engagement for the re-activation of the entire precinct.
