Improving heritage and planning arrangements

30 July 2019

Today, the Historic Cultural Heritage Amendment Bill 2019 has been introduced into Parliament to integrate historic heritage and planning legislation while ensuring the protection of our state’s precious cultural heritage.

The Bill integrates heritage and planning legislation, reduces red tape, and creates a single application and decision process for works on places in the Heritage Register.

The Bill also seeks to enhance the governance arrangements of the Heritage Council.

The development of the legislation follows consultation with key stakeholders including the Tasmanian Heritage Council and Tasmania’s local government authorities, who are supportive of the reforms.

The Hodgman majority Liberal Government is committed to preserving and revitalising our heritage and history while ensuring we have an efficient and responsive planning system.
