Our heritage: a collaborative effort

The discussion paper proposes changes to Queensland Heritage Act which aim to modernise the Heritage Act and clarify its intent; reduce unnecessary regulatory burden, particularly on heritage property owners and proponents; strengthen legislative protections for Queensland’s heritage places, while also promoting development; and, reinforce the important role played by local government in local heritage protection.

Consultation closes 20 June 2014.
