Registration Hearings

 

Registration hearings are public processes that allow interested people to present their views on whether or not a place or object is added to the Victorian Heritage Register.

The Council has developed a new set of protocols and forms to govern hearings and reviews that will be conducted under the Heritage Act 2017.

Protocols that govern hearings and appeals conducted under the Heritage Act 1995 will be available until all relevant processes have concluded.

Both sets of protocols are available on the documents for registrations and reviews.

Please note the Heritage Act 2017 commenced on 1 November. Registration and permit appeal processes that began under the Heritage Act 1995 will continue to be governed by that legislation from 1 November. Any review or hearing processes that begin after 1 November will be governed by the Heritage Act 2017.
