A major premise of the community-based approach is that it provides an affordable means
for communities to make a valuable contribution to the heritage study, with appropriate
guidance from a heritage consultant.
Members of the community work alongside the consultant for the duration of the project.
They undertake research, nominate items and consider recommendations for managing and
promoting their local heritage items in the future.
