Owners of a place/object subject to an Executive Director recommendation have a number of rights and obligations to ensure that the place/object is protected prior to the Heritage Council making a decision about whether it should or should not be included in the Victorian Heritage Register. For more information see Section 36 of the Heritage Act 1995 (DOCX 17.0 KB).
If the Heritage Council includes a place/object in the Victorian Heritage Register, it is legally protected to help ensure it survives for future generations. The implications of registration are explained in Registration by the Heritage Council (PDF 288.8 KB).
Registration means that proposed works and alterations to the place/object are subject to a permits process, as explained in Works and Alterations to Registered Heritage Places and Objects (PDF 346.3 KB).
