What Next For A.C.T. Heritage System?


A Parliamentary Inquiry has found – The ACT’s heritage system is “no longer fit for purpose” and needs significant changes and extra resources to meet community expectations.

The Inquiry was launched nearly a year ago after Heritage Minister REBECCA VASSAROTTI announced, she’d lost confidence in the Heritage Council.

According to the Inquiry’s report –

The ACT Heritage Council needs to meet more frequently to deal with the volume of applications – and the government’s heritage staff need more funding to exercise their duties.

It also recommended, The government should develop an ACT heritage strategy, which was first flagged in 2016, but has never been completed.
