“The Onkaparinga District Council Heritage Survey is the fifth of its kind undertaken by the Centre. Work on the first phase of the survey commenced late in 1982 with the aid of a grant from the South Australian Government Department of Environment and Planning. Annely Aeuckens, the Centre’s consultant historian assisted by Jane Coupland, historian, carried out extensive studies of the area’s early history and the development of its agricultural industry. In 1983 Annette Green, the Centre’s consultant architectural historian, conducted a heritage survey of the area and working in conjunction with Annely Aeuckens produced a list of historical precincts and buildings in the district on behalf of the South Australian Heritage Branch.
The second phase of the project commenced early in 1984 and was funded by grants from the Commonwealth and the Onkaparinga District Council. Further detailed historical research was carried out by Dr. Deborah Jordan, a consultant historian. Township and landscape studies were also undertaken by Peter Perkins, a consultant architect, in liaison with Brian Harper, Senior Lecturer in Planning, School of Built Environment, South Australian Institute of Technology.
To complete the project detailed studies of selected buildings were carried out in 1985 by Joe Timpani, a graduate architect from the School of Architecture at the South Australian Institute of Technology.”
