Protecting our heritage
Interim Heritage Orders protect items (places and objects) potentially of heritage significance that are under immediate threat.
Items under an interim heritage order cannot be harmed. This provides time for an in-depth heritage assessment to be carried out.
Items can only be placed under an Interim Heritage Order by the Minister responsible for administering the Heritage Act 1977 on recommendation of the Heritage Council, or by local councils under delegation.
