Tasmanian Heritage Council

​​​​​​​​​​​The Tasmanian Heritage Council is responsible for:
  • identifying and assessing places of historic heritage significance for entry in the Tasmanian Heritage Register
  • reviewing works to places entered on the Tasmanian Heritage Register to ensure that the heritage values are protected
  • providing strategic guidance on the management of historic heritage in Tasmania

The Heritage Council is the peak heritage body for the State. It consists of a 
  • Chair;
  • the Director of National Parks and Wildlife (or delegate from State Service);
  • organisational and community representatives; and
  • members with expertise in architecture, archaeology, history and engineering.

Member profiles are available on our Heritage Council ​Members page​.

​The Heritage Council works with property owners, communities, developers, and local government to celebrate and support the sustainable use of Tasmania's rich and diverse historic heritage. This is done by providing access to expert advice, guidance and consent for works to historic heritage places.

The Heritage Council is established under the Historic Cultural Heritage Act 1995, and is an integral part of Tasmania’s resource management planning system.
