Braidwood at the Crossroads


On March 30, 2006, Braidwood and its setting were officially listed on the NSW State Heritage Register. Planning Minister Frank Sartor made the announcement in Ryrie Park. "Braidwood is a rare surviving example of Georgian period town planning, dating from the 1830s," said Minister Sartor. "I am happy to list the town, which will guarantee that its unique character is retained. We have struck a balanced decision, to allow heritage to underpin the town's prosperity and to help the region's strong economic growth and dynamic communities."

Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to make this important decision a reality.


Braidwood, NSW is at a crossroads, with two huge developments having been approved on June 14, 2005, and a third proposal that sets a dangerous precedent for higher density development receiving approval on June 28, 2005.
