Why Acknowledge Local Heritage and then create a Regeneration Zone around it

Having spent a bit of time in the north of Black Forest in the last week I have a resounding question I struggle to find an answer to?

Why would we earmark a section of a suburb that has some of the more expensive properties of the suburb, and an area with local heritage houses be earmarked for the new regeneration zoning for Unley. I spoke with one resident earlier this week about his house, one of those listed as local heritage, who is likewise confused.

He receives a letter from Council one week that confirms his house has been listed as local heritage.

A few weeks later he gets a letter asking for his opinion abut his house now being in the residential regeneration zone, which will allow redevelopment of 3 storeys and more all around him.

This is clearly a question that warrants answering before council submits their thoughts to the Minister.
