Opportunities and recommendations for local governments delivering smart heritage
The expansion of smart computer-led technologies into new disciplines enables local governments to design and manage their cities with novel smart discourses. Smart Heritage, the convergence of the smart city and heritage disciplines, offers local governments means to regulate and steer these issues. However, due to its novelty, currently, no research exists on the opportunities and trajectory of Smart Heritage within local government. Therefore, the here presented paper reports the opportunities and recommendations for Smart Heritage within local government, drawing on interviews with smart city and heritage advisors from three Australian local councils. It finds opportunities for smart computer-led technologies to design unique economic, place-making, and governance experiences in cities and recommendations that normalise the delivery of local governments' regulatory duties by these technologies. The findings are significant for leading smart technologies further into the practical-political framework of local government and diversifying smart cities' scope while at the same time combining two separated policies.
