Some relief for opponents of two controversial developments in the Highlands.
Wingecarribee Council has placed six month interim heritage orders on properties at 2 and 4 Myrtle Street Bowral and Karingal at 26 Elizabeth Street in Moss Vale.
It means proposals to build townhouses won't be able to proceed for six months.
David Hayman from the Elizabeth Street Action Group said development needs to be carefully managed in the shire.
"We love living in the Highlands, we love the feeling of space and the country feel,
"We need to ensure we're not knocking down and getting rid of our own character,"Mr. Hayman said.
