Assessing heritage significance

Influence how we present heritage significance assessment in NSW.

Heritage NSW works with the NSW community and heritage custodians to celebrate, commemorate, conserve, use and protect our heritage for the benefit of current and future generations. A key component of our work is assessing heritage significance.

We are reviewing the ‘Assessing Heritage Significance’ 2001 guidelines to ensure that we capture contemporary, best practice approaches to assessing significance and present the process in an easy to understand format for everyone who may find themselves assessing the values associated with heritage places.

These guidelines are used every day by a range of different people, businesses, organisations and courts to understand the need for heritage protection and/or future management of a potential heritage item.

Have Your Say

This consultation provides a great opportunity to help influence the assessment of heritage significance guidelines.

We want to hear from you about what works and what does not work in the current practice, including the guidelines. Tell us of any challenges you face, when assessing heritage significance.
