The Stellenbosch Heritage Inventory and Management Plan

Jun 7, 2018 | News

The Stellenbosch Heritage Inventory and Management plan is innovative and authoritative and a significant achievement for Stellenbosch. Heritage Western Cape endorsed it on 23 May 2018.

The inventory is an overview inventory for Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and the district.  It was preceded by an earlier Heritage Inventory for the Stellenbosch town centre by the Stellenbosch Heritage Foundation. With these two surveys, a substantial part of the survey for Stellenbosch and district has now been completed. These now need to be reconciled with relevant information in the municipal database.

Professor Fabio Todeschini and Liana Jansen led the work on the inventory.  Among the professionals from various disciplines who contributed to the inventory are Dr Antonia Malan, Claire Abrahamse, Marike Franklin, Nicholas Wiltshire, Jenna Lavin and Shawn Johnstone.

The report and an overview map can be read and viewed on the SHF website (https://www.stellenboschheritage.co.za/stellenbosch-municipality-heritage-inventory)
