Registration

Places in the Victorian Heritage Register are considered to have 'state-level' cultural heritage significance.

Anyone can nominate a place or object to the Victorian Heritage Register, but only a small percentage of them will meet the criteria of the Heritage Council of Victoria. Many heritage places are locally significant and it is often more appropriate that they be protected by inclusion in local council heritage overlays.

All information about Registration Hearings can be found on the Heritage Council of Victoria's website.
