Jim Kerr’s gift was to articulate with great clarity how the care of special places might be achieved. He disseminated his ideas widely for discussion and tested them on real, culturally vital sites around Australia. He would then again update his policy document, the Conservation Plan. The annual Jim Kerr Memorial address pays respect to his legacy by perpetuating open enquiry into the understanding of place and the constant review of progress in conservation planning practice.
