This document presents an Initial Conservation Policy for the historic heritage of the Springs
Precinct, Wellington Park, Tasmania. The Initial Conservation Policy is the first step in assessing the
cultural heritage values and providing heritage conservation advice for the Springs as a whole. A
more comprehensive Conservation Management Plan is to be developed for the Springs in the longer
The aim of the Initial Conservation Policy is to provide guidance in relation to the sound
conservation and management of the historic heritage values of the Springs area in the short term as
the history of use of the Springs has created significant cultural heritage values in the area. The
Initial Conservation Policy is based on currently available information with some additional research
having been undertaken in areas for which there was unacceptably limited information (ie, the
history, physical remains and social values).
The need for historic heritage conservation policy for the Springs arises from the need to manage the
extensive, but previously poorly known, historic heritage values in an area that is also the primary
development and use focus in Wellington Park. This is particularly critical given the reserved land
management context of the Springs and Mt Wellington more generally for which the primary
management objectives are the protection of the natural and cultural values and the maintenance of
water quality, with use needing to be consistent with the protective goals.
