There are currently plans for a major overhaul of the legislation relating to the protection of the historic environment.
These reforms are outlined in the Heritage Protection Review which sets out the principles for a new legislative framework for a unified and simpler heritage protection system that will be more open, accountable and transparent.
The new system has been designed to provide more opportunities for public involvement and community engagement in understanding, preserving and managing our heritage.
Further details of the proposals can be found on the website of the Department of Culture Media and Sport.

As legislation is progressed through Parliament this page will be updated.
