NSW Government is developing a Heritage Strategy to set a new direction and vision for protecting heritage in our State.

Heritage includes the places, objects and stories we have inherited from the past and want to protect for generations to come.

Our heritage includes tens of thousands of years of Aboriginal culture and landscapes, natural heritage, historic buildings and structures, gardens, precincts and cultural landscapes, archaeological sites, shipwrecks and intangible heritage.

The NSW Heritage Strategy will address key challenges that heritage, in all its forms, is facing now and into the future.

Heritage NSW is seeking your feedback to inform and shape the direction of the NSW Heritage Strategy, ensuring it responds to community aspirations in delivering a better future for our heritage.

Your input will help to build our understanding of what is important to the community, key challenges facing heritage and opportunities to address them.

Please share your insights and ideas by completing the survey below until 31 March 2024.

Have your say consultations are run by the NSW Department of Customer Service (McKell Building, 2-4 Rawson Place, Haymarket NSW 2000).

We are interested in hearing from the community and will use the information we collect from you to help develop the programs and services that NSW Government provides.

We are collecting only minimal personal information from you. We may collect basic information like your name and contact details, if you choose to provide them. You may provide some personal information in response to questions that we ask you. For example, we may ask you about your experiences or opinions about a particular topic.

Having your say is voluntary and you are not legally required to provide any personal information to us. For some consultations, though, you will not be able to have your say unless you agree to include your personal information.

If you do provide personal information to us, you have a right to access it, and can ask us to correct it if it is wrong.

We may share personal information you provide with other parts of the Department of Customer Service (for example, with our Data Analytics Centre) so that we can conduct analysis across all consultations and refine our engagement methodology.

Where we conduct a consultation with or on behalf of a partner agency, we would usually share the information that we collect with that agency. In this instance, we are running this consultation with:

  • NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (Heritage NSW)
