COVID-19 Service Arrangements

​​​​We continue to deliver the full range of services that are normally provided to 
  • property owners
  • developers
  • local government and other clients

For the time being, we request all general enquiries be directed to our main email address:

This address is monitored regularly and we will respond to enquiries as promptly as we can. Please note that while our landlines are not currently able to be staffed, our staff remain available on their mobile telephones.

Certificates of Affected Place 

Applications for certificates of affected place should be lodged via our main email:​

Please note we have moved to a two-stage response. While we can confirm whether or not a place is entered in the Tasmanian Heritage Register, if information is required on any previous works decisions for a place, we ask that you lodge a separate request for this service by email.

Enquiries – Tasmanian Heritage Register

We will continue to assess and enter places of significance to Tasmania in the Tasmanian Heritage Register. Provisional entries in the Heritage Register will continue to be advertised in local newspapers, giving property owners, the public and local planning authorities the opportunity to lodge an objection or submission.

If you have a query about an assessment or whether a place is entered in the Heritage Register please email your enquiry to​

Certificates of Exemption

Applications for a certificate of exemption can continue to be lodged via our main email:​

However, our move to remote access (in line with expectations we engage in social distancing), means that while we will endeavour to process these applications within seven days, it may in some instances take longer to process these requests.

Owner and Proponent Advice

We continue to offer free consultation sessions for property owners and developers to proactively discuss their plans to undertake works on a place in the Heritage Register.

Our Advisors continue to be available to connect over the telephone or via a video meeting, but we regret that we are not in a position to offer on-site meetings or visits at this time.

Discretionary permit applications

These should continue to be lodged with your local planning authority. 

We encourage all owners or developers thinking about undertaking works on a place in the Heritage Register to consult our Work Guidelines​, and to make contact with a heritage advisor to discuss their plans before they lodge an application.


While we are not able to produce and disseminate our usual monthly e-newsletter at this time, we will continue to place topical updates of interest on our website.

If you have any questions please contact Heritage Tasmania via our main email:​


In the meantime, stay at home and stay safe
