Heritage Policy and Guidance
This page contains the Heritage Council’s policy and guidance documents to assist in the nomination and assessment of places and objects for inclusion in the Victorian Heritage Register.
These documents should be read in conjunction with the Heritage Council’s Criteria for Inclusion in the Victorian Heritage Register.
The Framework of Historical Themes were developed in 2010 by the Heritage Council of Victoria and the Victorian Aboriginal Heritage Council to increase awareness and appreciation of the State’s diverse heritage.
The purpose of the Landscapes of Cultural Heritage Significance: Assessment Guidelines is to improve the understanding, identification and assessment of the cultural values of landscapes in Victoria.
